I am having problems trying to trace the date and birthof my grandfather, Wheppton Homer Hunt. According to his marriage, deat certificates and both 1910 and 1911 censuses, he was born in 1877 in Warrington, Lancashire, England, and his fatgher's name was Thomas Hunt, mother was Elizabetha. However, nothing turns up on the birth documents. Can anyone please give me any ideas how to further my search? I have contacted Warrington Registration Office, only to be told that there is no Wheppton Homer Hunt born in 11877 in Warrington.
He may have been registered under a different first name, this happens a lot. Have you found his siblings birth entries? This can be a good clue too. Maybe he wasn't born in Warrington. Try the Rootsweb site FreeBMD (google it) and search for him without using a place of birth. Also try different spelling of his first name.
