Gins they are a nightmare. so many untruths and things being hidden.

I remember mum talking about her maternal gran she died in 1919 and lived with the family in SE London after her hubby died in 1907 in West Ham. Dont recall, although memory can get lost, mum ever talking about her fathers mum. My mum was born in 1909.

Safc I think that one is too old, Esther was def born in 1852 .I have her birth cert.Thanks for looking .

Found "!! she moved to Colne Lancashire with her eldest daughter Esther Jane Hounslow nee Batchelor and died in 1926.

Only just found her after finding that Esther Hounslow had a son in 1912 in Lancashire and searching the family found marriages etc for Esther & Henry Hounslow children and both their deaths

Esther Matilda was living with her daughter & SIL when she died in Burnley General Hospital ,her daughter reg the death but didnt give her second name on the cert of Matilda .

Got the cert a few days ago.
Should have taken notice of londonbelles posting as that one turned out to be her ,but at the time I had no reason to think she had gone to Lancashire

Only taken me about 4 years to find her death :-|
