If you go to the SEARCH icon towards top right of your screen and click to view ..Search all members trees.... you will be able to search some of these FAIRBANK names.
2 people have George FAIRBANK b. 1903 in their tree. Click on their name to contact them.
You can perhaps share information about what happened to Edith.

Have you looked for a further marriage after Fairbank's death?

Rodwell/Rodmell was part of his name..............not a different man.............

Hello Christine and welcome to the Boards. :-)

As Christine is a new poster, I'll send a friendly message on how to find her thread. :-)

I just wondered if the names listed in Probate might fit?

England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1966

Name:Edith Fairbank of: 73 Westwood Golcar, Yorkshire (Widow)

Probate Date:9 Feb 1942

Death Date:17 Dec 1941

Death Place: 14 Arthur Street, Golcar, Yorkshire, England

Registry:Manchester, England

Probate to: Willie Fairbank (Farmer) & Joseph Taylor (Property Repairer)

£673 13s 2d


ArgyllGran Report 17 Aug 2013 21:44

There's this death, which fits re age. She had the middle initial R in 1901, presumably Rodwell/Rodmell :

Deaths Mar 1958 (>99%)
FAIRBANKS Edith R 76 Upper Agbrigg 2d 645

The Edith who died in 1941, posted by Gins, was probably a little too young to be the right one - aged 62 at death.
