I can see her marriage but not anything else. Do you know if this was her maiden name?
ADDED it seems to be, as 2 offspring I think?

I think this must be her, given Frank's location 1911:

Although the above looks likely, there are several Ethel Raithby's around.
I would advise getting the marriage cert.

Hayes Ellen Boston 7a 807
Raithby Harry Boston 7a 807
Robinson Sarah Ann Boston 7a 807
Wortley Thomas Boston 7a 807


There is no record on the 1911 census of the duration of the marriage

The '9' refers to the number of children born during the marriage

Thank you, one and all for the prompt replies and the fantastic information unearthed, its made our day but sad to note that my father - in - law never knew that his mother passed away aged 90 at about the same time as himself at the age of 72.

Hugh Malcolm Report 8 Dec 2012 22:41

can anyone help regarding death of Frank Willoughby Walter ? also did Ethel Dorothy Raithby marry again or have any further children apart from Frank Edward Walter when she was married to F W Walter.

Can't see a death for him, but I think Reggie has found Ethel's death record, see above.

You can check for births yourself on Freebmd, but it looks like there was only one, unless this is a bit mis-transcribed:

Births Sep 1923 (>99%)
Walters Harry Raithby Lincoln 7a 872

If the date of birth on the death record is correct (at least the day and month which is usually the case) then this is the most likely birth I can see for Ethel but without a first name when she was registered:-


Name: RAITHBY, Female (unnamed)
Registration district: Horncastle
County: Lincolnshire
Year of registration: 1892
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Mother's maiden name: Not available before 1911 Q3
Volume no: 7A
Page no: 559

This would be the correct quarter for a birth on 4th August.

This looks like the only possible death for Frank Willoughby Walter as the age is about right but in a different area:-


Name: WALTERS, Frank W
Registration district: Uxbridge
County: Middlesex
Year of registration: 1961
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Age at death: 67
Volume no: 5F
Page no: 150

It would be easy for someone to add an "s" to the end of his name - especially if he was away from home for some reason.
