Well found for the marriage Christina!!

looks like Christina's 1898 marriage could be the one ;-)

1911 census stated 1 child had died. 2 living, so I assume the death Rosina.

However, without Georges marriage certificate we have no way of knowing if this is the correct family.

It does look promising though, the birth was registered in Q4/1913, so would be 37 in 1951.

Possible sibings. Although there is a large gap between Lily May & George Edward.

Herbert Charles Miles
Probate Date: 19 Nov 1947
Death Date: 16 Sep 1947
Death Place: Bath
Registry: Bristol
Probate to Percy Every Grant, solicitors clerk.

So a dead end I'm afraid.

Just in case it is the family - they were living 45 Albany Road from the 1911 census to their deaths, and Herbert was a master bread baker. They had another child apart from Lily, Stanley who was 9.

Possible marriage for his parents......

Hayward Henry Albert Bath 5c 1101
>>>>MILES Herbert Charles F Bath 5c 1101

As Shirley mentioned above, his marriage cert will give you his father's name and you will need that to be sure.


There are probate records for Henry Charles Miles in 1947 and Edith Shutt Miles in 1948. Will someone please have a look to see if either mentions George E Miles?

Edit: Should be Herbert Charles Miles in 1947.

Do you know if he was drafted during the war, as there is a gap between Geraldine 1939 and the child who died (Susan A) her birth & death were registered in the June quarter of 1945.

I think this has been marked as answered by mistake Reggie, Rikki is a new member so probably doesn't know it marks the whole thread as answered on the board.
