Can anyone help me trace my husband's Grandfather, Charles John Blake
Born in 1897 in Croydon Surrey. He married Rose Violet Newman in 1917 in Croydon. She died in 1920, they had one daughter Winifred Margery on Nov. 6th 1919. I can find no trace of him after 1917. He was a Carman in the Army Service Corps. in the 1914-1918 War.

Have you got his daughter's marriage cert? Just wondering if it says if he is deceased - not 100% reliable, as it might say nothing, but a start!
I assume you mean no trace after 1919?

Someone on Ancestry has him re-marrying in 1922? To a Dorothy Pfledger. Also has 2 daughters to 1st marriage. Might be wrong of course!

Bearing in mind that many people retired to the West Country, or in that general direction, could this be relevant?

Hello Helen and welcome to the boards.

It may be worthwhile putting Charles' name into the Search Trees box above as several members on this site seem to have him in their tree.

If you think you find a connection, you can contact the tree owner for further information. Cx.
