Born in Lanchester her birth should be under Durham Reg district ???

RutlandBelle

RutlandBelle Report 8 Feb 2011 19:03

so if she was 8mth old on April 2nd when census was taken she must have been born about Aug/Sept 1910

RutlandBelle

RutlandBelle Report 8 Feb 2011 19:05

yes they should Shirley but none coming up, the only one is named Lily


Births Sep 1910
ALDERSON Lily Lanchester 10a 339


now my grandfather was registered as Robert but was baptised Matthew and it took me ages to realise this. He was always Matthew and I don't think he ever knew he originaly had a different name

Hello All can you help me further Please

I can't find a birth or a death for Ada May Alderson . Ada could have remarried as Alfred Th0mas died 1950

I cannot find a death certificate for Thomas William Alderson my grandfather Thomas is listed on the 1911 census staying /living at the home of his parents William and Mary Alderson at 3 Bowden Yard-Willington-Durham. Thomas must have died between 1911 and 1918 as his wife Sarah remarried in1818. I have the marriage Certificate and it states that she is a widow.
