The following baptisms are on Freereg, which means that that the images will be on Medway City Ark. If you repeat the search yourself, it will tell you where they were living at the time. There might be others not yet transcribed especially if they moved.

Grace Hawkins – 05 Jan 1913, St John the Baptist, Meopham

Annie Elizabeth Hawkins
summary
CrematedOn: 27 Apr 1962
Recorded at: Eltham Crematorium (Greenwich)
Date of death 19 Apr 1962

You can purchase credits for decasedonline and view the cremation register. The above was on a free search.

If you have a number of relatives in N Kent, S E London, its a marvelous site as they list people on the cremation register in Eltham Crematorium, Eltham is the nearest one to Swanley, Farningham, Dartford etc.

They also have
Charlton Cemetery, opened 1855
Eltham Cemetery, opened 1935
Greenwich Cemetery, opened 1856
Plumstead Cemetery, opened 1890
Woolwich Cemetery, opened 1856

Dartford and Swanley churches have their registers on line at
http://cityark.medway.gov.uk/

The Fawkham baptism listed above would also be on there - so much better to see the image than only the transcription, and best of all, it's FREE!

Meopham also features on the site, but the marriage for Robert John Hawkins isn't in a deposited book for his time scale. It's always possible that he married in a Register Office or not in a CofE church.

The Medway City Ark records are being transcribed onto http://www.freereg.org.uk/ which is a work in progress. It's part of the Freebmd group and a handy tool before you start to plough through cityark images.

For instance, Herbert William Hawkins baptism has been transcribed as

County Kent
Place Fawkham
Church St. Mary the Virgin
RegisterNumber 792
DateOfBirth
BaptismDate 25 Mar 1906
Forename Herbert William
Sex M
FatherForename Robert John
MotherForename Annie Elizabeth
FatherSurname HAWKINS
MotherSurname
Abode Six Acres Fawkham
FatherOccupation Labourer

So that's 3 more sites to add to your 'Favourites'! :-D

Melissa i posted the 1911 census on page one that does include some of the siblings names you quote ie Grace.,Hebert , Florence and others so looks like the right family.

You can confirm the parents names with Frederick's birth cert.

well as he his mum maiden name seems to be Martin then looking on FreebMD for Hawkins mmn Martin will show his siblings.
Im afraid for actual birth dates .unless they died after c1975 when birth dates are shown on the death cert GRO ref , you woud have to buy the birth certs

Possibly!

Depending on what info Melissa already has, it might be best for her to purchase Frederick's BC rather than go off at a tangent.

That 1901 marriage might be on http://cityark.medway.gov.uk/ if anyone wanted to have a dig.

Where's Cynthia when you need her? :-D
