Sorry, you may have read them..............but you didn't take in the facts.

Absorb the info posted.....PLEASE

Helen did not marry!!!!!!!!!

And her daughter seems to have followed her example.


stanfield Report 20 Feb 2013 23:24

Hello again Reggie

Yes thank you I did read all yours and everyone elses replies and am very grateful to you all.

Helen Elizabeths birth cert...Father ...Frederick Henry George
So we do know that they were together.
I mentioned needing to look into a marriage between them as I would like to know if, when and where Frederick and Lilian married.

I would also like to know if Helen married to know who Lilians father was.

Sorry if i've caused any upset, I am very grateful to you for everthing

Did you not take ANY notice of the census info I posted?

And the woman's baptism and burial posted by others?

If you think Helen ever had a her daughter's birth cert to find out his name.


stanfield Report 20 Feb 2013 22:34

Yes Rootgatherer you found her, that is fantastic thank you for all your hard work

The next thing for me to do is try and find Frederick Henry George and if Lilian did marry him, when and where they got married?

And to find out what Helen did before Lilian came and who was Helen's
husband :-S

Many thanks everyone else who has been helping me on here

Val :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

The woman who died in 1958 had maiden name Buckley. Frances Maybury was her sister.


rootgatherer Report 20 Feb 2013 21:15

So this is your Lilian then

Name: Lilian George, Widow, 15 Wythenshawe Road, Sale, Cheshire
Probate Date: 24 Jul 1963
Death Date: 9 Jul 1963
Death Place: Cheshire, England
Registry: Manchester, England

Died at The Royal Infirmary Manchester.

Probate to Helen Elizabeth Bayley married woman.

So now you have an accurate death date for Lilian.


MarieCeleste Report 20 Feb 2013 21:11

Val, on a probate record such as the one posted above the person named is not necessarily the beneficiary but is the person to whom probate was granted.


rootgatherer Report 20 Feb 2013 21:06

Was Lilian's death registered with the surname George please?


The probate for the Lilian that I posted above - she died on
19 September 1958 at Withington Hospital.


stanfield Report 20 Feb 2013 21:01

Hi rootgatherer
yes Lilian and Frederick had a daughter and a son both born in Manchester.

Lilian lived with her daughter and son in law in Wythenshawe Road in Sale Manchester until she went into hospital and she died.

I dont think that the Lilian you found can be her unless the address is a hospital.

I dont have a clue who Frances Kate Maybury is and I would have thought if Lilian had anything to leave it would have gone to her 2 cildren!!!!!?




rootgatherer Report 20 Feb 2013 20:28

You mean Lilian had two children with Frederick Henry George?

Reggie Report 20 Feb 2013 16:28

No-one can tell you where Helen was between 1911 and her death.

The 1921 census will not be released until at least 2022

If you get her death cert, you will find out her address, which may help you to find her on Electoral Rolls at the Manchester library.
