looking for an Emily Coombey. Mother of Faith and Charity Coombey. Charity died as an infant. Emiley was resident at Snails Bank, Cradley, Nr Bromyard. herefordshire at time of birth.
I suspect she was born in Lugwardine Herefordshire in 1893. Appears on 2011 census in Abergavenny working in a flower shop. There seems to be a possible linked to marriage in 1931 to a Francis J Johns.
Can anyone confrm any of this info.

You would need to see the marriage cert to Francis Johns to be sure she names the same father

English christenings from ancestry. Louis from 1891 census:

Louis Coombey
Gender: Male
Christening Date: 24 Nov 1889
Christening Place: Lugwardine, Herefordshire, England
Father's Name: Oliver Coombey
Mother's Name: Emily Blanche

Added:
And William Henry:

William Henry Coombey
Gender: Male
Christening Date: 2 Jun 1895
Christening Place: Lugwardine, Herefordshire, England
Father's Name: Oliver Coombey
Mother's Name: Emily Blanche

so likely that Edith is wrong on that record found for Emily.

I still think the 1927 marriage to Clifford J Powell is correct

Thanks all , I have seen most of the info but the real tie up would be confirmation that an Emily lived at Cradley, Herefordshire in 1924.

The 'real tie up' may be where Emily lived in 1924, but buying the certificates would help to confirm or disprove some of the suggestions above.
