Oh my good lord he was only 15 when he passed away how tragic.
Thank you Rootgatherer, is there any way of finding out what the cause of death was?

To find out the cause of death you would need to purchase the death certificate from GRO.

They all seem to tie in with dates and so on, Oh my Ruth was widowed quite young and with all those children to care for life must of been chaotic, however would she have managed and what income would they have had. So many questions left unanswerd.
Thank you Rootgatherer

Pleasure to help you Amanda. It's great for us helpers when the poster stays around to find out what has been found and responds quickly as you have done.

When you get the certificates, if you require any more help on this family remember to add it to this thread to keep all the information together.

Good luck with your research.

Mrs. Rootie
