Hi

Were the other children baptised? Can't see them on the London records

Have you considered this child?



Deaths Jun 1908

LEE Female 0 Fulham 1a 156


Looking on FreeBMD, there are a few deaths that could be one of the couples children. I think it's a case of buying certificates, which could cost you quite a bit until you find the correct one

They told porkies on the 1911 census saying they had been marries for 11 year. They got married in 1915 lol.
