ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Colin Report 22 Jan 2014 13:45

Looking for information on Rose Maud Hill from East End/Barking area.
She was my father, Henry Leonard (Len) Usher's first wife. He married her before 1933 as she died that year.
If anyone has any information please contact me.

Look for the a copy of the cert, to find out how old she was, and if she knew her father's details


You know when she how old was she?

Look for a birth to fit.............

We don't contact you - except by responding on you need to monitor your thread for feedback

Is that your tree on Ancestry that has her death date as 1933? Such a shame to post the wrong info on an online tree. People tend to copy. It was very easy to confirm the date on FreeBMD.


Colin Report 22 Jan 2014 15:30

Thanks for your replies. I was told by my late mother that Rose died in 1933. As I have not been able to find anything about her, I posted here. I didn't know my father was previously married until after his death.
Have checked on freeBMD and could only find a possible match for her birth.
I'd like to know how you found her dod Margee.
The 1911 census looks good Reggie, thanks.
Thanks for the marriage index Helen. I now have a bit more to work on.


Reggie Report 22 Jan 2014 15:33

The death is on is easily found

You could also have easily found the marriage.. on the same site, although Helen posted from one of the subscription sites.

I deliberately didn't post either - to allow to find them for yourself, which is much the best way.

When Rose Maud died she left an estate of 216 pounds, 9 shillings. Probate was granted to her husband Henry Leonard Usher, clerk, London Port Authority.


Colin Report 22 Jan 2014 16:12

Guess I'm doing something wrong, I can find her birth but not marriage or death.
I agree it's nice to find things for yourself but when you can't you seek a little help!


Margee Report 22 Jan 2014 16:18

Perhaps you're putting in too much info. Click on Deaths. Surname Usher, first name Rose M. Two come up, one in 1935.

Likewise for marriage type in Hill, Rose M. married to Usher.


Colin Report 22 Jan 2014 17:05

Found, thank you very much. I was putting Rose Maud which obviously was too munch info. It's never too late to learn!

Thanks again.



Colin Report 26 Jan 2014 12:20


One of your replies above, you stated that when Rose Maud died she left an estate of 216 pounds, 9 shillings and that probate was granted to my father, a clerk for the Port of London.
May I ask how you obtained this information. Was it a web site?

Sorry to be a nuisance.



Margee Report 26 Jan 2014 17:48

Colin, that probate info was from Ancestry.


Colin Report 26 Jan 2014 20:07

Many thanks Margee

Colin, still learning!!
