Alice May May (Nee Hooper) (born 1897 St Thomas Exeter Devon)- died in 1950's or 60's I think - but not sure- in Topsham,Devon. (Comes under Exeter)
and her husband Albert/Bert John May. Have tried the Exeter City council burials but typically 'M' isn't loading ! any help appreciated-and if anyone can spot a child? Mum seemed to think there was one- but never found yet. :-)
