So today would have been Louis’s birthday. He was born 8th August 1908 in Birmingham, the son of Joseph Teiger and Annie Ison.
In the 1911 census we find him living at 82 Gooch Street, Birmingham with his parents and his brother Sidney. Quite a “cosmopolitan” family with Joseph his father being born in Poland, Annie his mother born in London, Sidney his brother was born in Wales whilst Louis was born in Birmingham.
Louis married Blanch Edwards in June 1935 and at this time he is already living in London and can be picked up in the Electoral Rolls 1934-1939. They had a daughter Julie in 1937.
He appeared in a newspaper story in 1947 after he was involved in a traffic accident, unfortunately with a policeman on his motorcycle! His occupation was reported as “traveller”. The case was dismissed.
Louis passed away in March 1981 and was buried 22nd March 1981 at Bushey Jewish Cemetery, Little Bushey Lane, Bushey, Herts WD23 3TP. (Section 26, Row 18, Plot 712) next to his wife Blanch.
