HELP Can anybody please help me find a birth i have change my thread content so i can put exactly what i now

Eleanor Nellie Cooley born either 1900/1901 in either Mile End or Bethnal Green. Her parents was Richard William Cooley and Ellen Richards who was married in 1886. Her siblings was Catherine Cooley,Richard W Cooley,James Cooley,Michael Cooley and Mary Victoria Cooley who apart from richard i cant find any solid birth information on them either . Eleanor Nellie Cooley Married James Alexander King on 03/10/1925 in Poplar where she was stated as being 25 years old but walked out on the family in 1951 and never seen again. If anybody can give me any information on her Birth or Death that would be fantastic

Also Richard W Cooley (Son) married in Bethnal Green in 1909
James seems to get married in Mile End.


This seems like the Fathers marriage however the Womans name is not mentioned on here and this ties in with Richard W (Sons) Birth date.

I would get one of the other childrens birth certificates to enable you to go further.

Do you know if the 1901 census record is the correct family?

hi lesley
i am 99.99999 sure it is the same family as she states her farther name on the marriage certificate and his occupation which does match up but that could be a possibility

Seems Eleanor's mother died in 1906 which would explain why she is living with her brother:

my dad never really new his mum as she walked out on the family when he was 7 years old so he has not got that many memories of her as he never saw her again in is now 68 she has been a right pain to find so may be her name was nellie and not eleanor as she has always been a bit of a mystery
