Hi Somersetgirl. Thankyou for your help. In 1911 Elizabeth Rowland was working in Hyde Park Gdn's For the Stubb Family. Gael from down under has given me a marriage for her that look's very promising. And I shall follow up.
Rena also I beleive to be the right one.
Would you be able to follow up on Bertie Alfred Rowland 1896. Who was living with them in 1911. What had to him?
And Gertrude Mary Rowland who left the home in Jarvis Road Croydon in 1917/18. My Grandmother what happened to her. Did she remarry? go abroad. Or maybe Elizabeth's marriage cert might have a clue. When I get it. Thanks again for your help. Regard's Joyce


Joyce Report 31 Oct 2010 10:21

Thankyou so much for all your help. On the Rowland family.
only Gertrude Mary to find now.
What with brother and brother in law. Death's Around the the same time.
Maybe it was all too much for her. But where did she go? Regard's joyce


Joyce Report 5 Nov 2010 16:31

Hi Thank's I have now received this marriage cert. And it is the right one. Wittness to marriage was her sister Rena and her husband. I was hoping Gertrude would be on it as well. But no Luck....
So Ill keep on searching for her. Very difficult when you don't know if she remarried.
That's the two you have helped with Bertie and Elizabeth.
Thank's again Joyce


Joyce Report 29 Jul 2013 14:33

Hi. Long time since I've visited here. I don't think I have the right Bertie Rowland. I believe he died in the war. And the death cert. I have sent for. Say's Gertrude Mary Rowland was he's mother and was with him in Wales when he died.. I believed he was her brother. And at the time of his death> She was Gertrude Mary Webb. Having married in 1908. Could this be the explanation of why she left the family home about 1917. How can I prove these are the same people. Help please.

That could be the one Joyce refers to, Maddie. Thanks

Perhaps someone with Ancestry would be good enough to look for possible service records for Bertie................based on the death info....................


Reggie Report 29 Jul 2013 15:03

As Gertrude was Joyce's grandmother, one would expect her to know the names of the children, although in the original post, she didn't mention that she knew the woman's married name...............
