if you are sure that Alice died in 1929, then could you say which of the above deaths is hers please.

Do you have her death certificate, what exactly does it say?


Ann Report 8 Dec 2012 23:29

Hi Catherine,
Sorry for the delay in returning my reply,
Catherine I do have Alice S Norris's death certificate, i know this is the right one because its stated the same address of which her husband had on his death. Her death was in1929 "Alice S Norris " of 79 Giffin Street.
Many thanks Ann

Just a couple of comments:

Catherine - an extra mid initial of S is the one letter that wouldn't have worried me.
Using the names of this thread in place of the real names, my paternal gran was born as Alice Stanton, married as Alice Stanton, and died as Alice Stanton Norris.
Similarly, my maternal grandad was born and married as James Thomas Norris, but died as James Thomas Stanton Norris.

Sylvia - I'm wondering if Husler is a misspelling of Hostler, possibly combined with a mistranscription - I can't see the original image.

Old thread, mgnv.

I was highlighting the connection with a new thread

Found son of James and Alice in Southport, Cheshire in the 1911 census - aged 9 as a half nine knitter (whatever that is). Feel confident that the 1929 death for Alice Norris is a red herring. The family seem to have a story that Alice Norris was involved in a manslaughter/murder, so perhaps the 1902 death might have value.

this is a very old thread.

Ann may no longer be expecting a reply, and GR does not notify people of new messages on threads..

You should send her a private message (also called a pm) through the GR system.

Just click on her name, then type your message in the box.

Good afternoon,
I was wondering if someone could be so kind and give me a look up on the 1911 census, it's of a James Norris born 1902 from London and living in Stockport Cheshire.
Very kind regards Ann.

What is your thoughts on James NORRIS born around 1901/1902 at Stockport, Cheshire. It shows the place of birth as Peckham, which is next door to Greenwich and he is in a correctional school.

Still not found Alice.

Regards Rob.
