Hi, is anyone free to do a census search for me please

If possible 1911 census Florence May Ward (nee wroe) born 1888 and Charles Ward born 1876. There children by then I think were Charles Ernest Ward 1909, Florence May Ward 1907 and Gwendoline 1911. They should be living in Durham.
I'm really trying to see where it states Florence and Charles were born and any occupations. Also if anyone else was in the household.

Many thanks in advance, Sarah

New thread:
http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/boards/board/ancestors/thread/1317645

Hi wondering if anyone can offer any advice or point me in the right direction as to where I can search next.

I'm trying to trace Florence May Ward (nee Wroe) born abt 1888 in Middlesborough, Yorkshire and Charles Ward born abt 1876 in Plumstead, Kent.
Another genes member has kindly just found them for me on the 1911 census living in Durham with their 3 young children, Charles Ernest, Florence May and Gwendoline. It states Charles' occupation as a Bricklayer and that they have been married for 6 years.
I cant seem to find either of them anywhere previous to the census record. Cant find any marriage record, census record, baptisms etc.
Any ideas or websites would be a great help.
Many thanks, Sarah

Sarah - if you go to your first post on this thread there will be a button that says something like "mark this as unanswered" - click on that and we should continue on here where there is already information relevant to your new query.

The way to settle it is to buy one of their children's birth certificates and see what name(s) it gives for Florence May.

Do you know of any children they may have had after 1911?

EDIT: Guess this must be one

OK - this must be one of the children:

England & Wales, FreeBMD Birth Index, 1837-1915
Name: Eveline R Ward
Mother's Maiden Name: Wroe
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1913
Registration district: Durham
Inferred County: Durham
Volume: 10a
Page: 920

It's quite possible that they never actually married and she assumed the name "Ward"

moonstar Report 15 Jan 2013 20:40

Yep other children are
Eveline 1913, Robert 1915, Ethel 1918, Stanley 1919, Doris 1920, Elizabeth 1925 and James 1928.

Yeah guess she may have assumed the Ward surname.

Any one have ideas where I can try and trach them before though, ie. with their own parents etc
Thanks

Interesting, well worth noting down.

I have got a copy of Eveline's birth certificate and it states Florence May Ward, nee Wroe and then just father names as Charles and occupation Bricklayer. May well be worth ordering one of two of her siblings certificates though to see if any other info is disclosed.
