hannah... did you say your nan lost her dad when she was 18? ish... which means the 1948 death is probably right?

Do you know where Florence was when she died?

Hannah

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 13:42

Yes she was about 18 ish so i think the death is probably right. Also i remember her saying that he was only about 50 ish when he died of a heart attack.

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 13:43

I've found a death for

Florence May Leese dob 14/02/1908 but she died in Stoke/T. in June qtr 1971.

Any good?

WayneTracey

WayneTracey Report 30 Aug 2007 13:45

how old was florence when she died? roughly?

Hannah

Hannah Report 30 Aug 2007 13:46

I suppose it could be possible. Maybe they never had his birth certificate because it was with his family in blackburn and they never went to blackburn to see them.
