Freda Report 24 Feb 2013 02:46

My Grandfather William Henry Ford B c 1896 Jackfield Shropshire and my Grandmother Grace Hazlehurst divorced c 1923 she was one of the first women to petition for divorce (after new womens rights were introduced in 1923) i believe. I think he married a Nora Gertrude Dingley in Barton upon Irwell Lancs in 1927, she was born Sculcoates Hull Yorks. Also, I am awaiting copies of the divorce records from Kew, but wondered could anybody please check/look up the following birhs to check if William Henry Ford and Nora Gertrude Dingley (they married 1927) were the parents of the two children i will post details of; please. Details are, child 1, Reginald Ford b AMJ quarter in Atherstone Warwickshire 1927. Mother Dingley father William H Ford. This birth was also listed as a death in 1927 records. Second birth is for a Robert H ford B AMJ 1928 Burton upon Irwell Lancs, mother listed as Dingley. My Grandfather William Henry Ford died Oct 1927 in Liverpool,aged 39; both children could be his and Noras. Thanks in advance for any help given..

This is the marriage you mention but it is in 1924 -

Marriages Sep 1924 (>99%)
DINGLEY Nora G Ford Barton I. 8c 1337
Ford William H Dingley Barton I 8c 1337

This is the one in 1927 -

Marriages Jun 1927 (>99%)

Births Jun 1932 (>99%)
Ford Nora M Dingley Manchester S. 8d 157

Births Sep 1934 (>99%)
Ford June Dingley Atherstone 6d 895

Based on the districts the weddings took place in I would say that Reginald, Margery K. and June could be the children of Lily and Thomas H. Ford.

Robert H. could be the son of Nora G. and William H. Ford.

The only way to be absolutely sure would be to buy the birth certificates from

Many thanks for extra info, I had 1924 as marriage year but put 1927 in post. I didnt have the marriage of Thomas H Ford and Lily Dingley, makes sense now when you look at data. I will order the cert for Robert H Ford, i wasnt sure if the Reginald Ford birth i had found was child of Nora G and William H Ford; as my father was also named Reginald Ford. Many Thanks again, your data was much appreciated .

something does not add up

"My Grandfather William Henry Ford B c 1896 Jackfield Shropshire and my Grandmother Grace Hazlehurst divorced c 1923"

Marriages Dec 1905 (>99%)
FORD William Henry Chester 8a 759
HAZLEHURST Grace Chester 8a 759

Cheshire Marriage indexes for the years: 1905
Surname Forename(s) Surname Forename(s) Church / Register Office Registers At Reference
FORD William H HAZELHURST Grace Chester, Civil Marriage Cheshire West ROC/50/70

I assume William Henry was born 1886 not 1896

Thanks for looking, and Yes, sorry I put wrong year for birth of William H Ford, and also the marriage to Nora Dingley; it was 1924 not 1927 as i put. It was nearly 3am in the morning when i posted, lol. His birth year was actaully 1887 Jackfield Shropshire and Grace H B 1888. They both lied about age to marry. I have ordered wedding cert to assertain if it is my William H Ford and the death cert for Nora Gertrude Ford; to see who notified her death. Thanks again.
