Oh right it only goes back as far as 1911 Census. I didn't see the OP said around the 70's.
I still thought though if his aunt lived on that property in 1911 or earlier ( 1901) he might get the house address or this aunts burial Record might
OP the census records show siblings and all who lived in the house, how many rooms it has and if you create a tree you can add in the siblings and
their descendants likely have trees to use as clues ( only ever use them as clues as many people just go around adding whoever and can mess up your
tree if you copy), but you can make as many trees as you like and I have one I put the iffy clues in. One I made had my grandmothers name spelt wrong,
so I deleted it, only to go on a mad hunt for it later and it was indeed correct. Some people spell names incorrectly amd the year of birth is a
guess if you keep in mind they took the census in April and the child's age is provided on it and they ( a transcriber who did it in our timeline)
just guesses at the year of birth ( being month of birth can screw that up)
Religion helps too. Catholics are going to be buried in a catholic cemetery.
As many clues you can get on your aunt, start with that you can put about 1904 ( abt 1904) if you think she might have been born that year give or
take one or two. Where you think she was born , where you think she lived, died, who her spouse & children were etc. Soon you get clues ( leafs) and
you scrutinize all the details to see if they jive.
Im no expert at it, but I spent some time trying to find out more on my grandmother. Her father was Irish, last name Murphy. I was told I'd have no
luck with that name! He filled it out and spelt my grandmothers name wrong. Anyways I got his place of birth in county Galway Ireland, got his burial
Record ( died at home and address matched up to that census). Most births were at home too. I got his middle name from my grandmothers birth record. I
ignore other clues since his name is all too common. One day I might find more. I did get his year of birth and death though. Got their home address.
I found his missing son's ( my grt uncle) army records.
