Jewish Actors (Cohen) in England ca 1916 #unitedkingdom


Dave Smith
 

Hello

I am seeking any information available on Hyman Cohen (b 1866) and his
son Julius Cohen (1889-1947) who I understand were both actors. In
particular I am trying to trace their movements around England in the
period ca 1916. Any help or ideas will be most gratefully received. I
have not been able to identify them clearly in the 1901 & 1911 census
and I am not even sure when Hyman died.

Thanks You and Best Wishes

Thanks for this suggestion. The occupation doesn't appear against them on the UK censuses so I have been a little doubtful about the veracity of this belief. I suspect they may have used stage names or, for other reasons, have not used their Jewish name. it is high on my "To Do" list, 'though. Many thanks for the suggestion.
 Best Wishes

A good place to look is in your local Central Library, which could/should have a copy of "Who's Who in the Theatre". this publication has not only information about Actors but information about Theatres in the UK.
