Electoral Role help

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


*stinkermurdock* Report 6 Aug 2008 11:34


Hoping someone might be able to help me or point me in the right direction. I am trying to trace what happened to my Great grandmother Elizabeth Sims (nee Ringwood). I never met either of my great grandparents as my nan never mentioned them so wondered if they had a falling out. I have managed to trace my great grandfathers death, he died in 1966 in Corringham, Essex. His death is registered by his daughter Louisa Smith (nee Sims), I am hoping that the family might be on an electoral role somewhere as I have no Idea what happened to Elizabeth Sims, did she die?, leave the family I dont know. Her last child was born in 1924 but sadly died 1928. My nan was married in 1936 in Essex but her mother is not on the marriage cert. My nan and grandad have now passed away, so I am unalbe to ask directly. Any help would be greatfully received.

The family are:
Charles Frederick Sims
Elizabeth Sims

I do not know where they were born.

Children are

Louisa Clara Jane Sims born 1914 Essex.
Edith Mildred Sims born 1917 Essex.
Albert Sims born 1920 Essex.
Monica Sims born 1924 Essex.

Thanks again :-0)
