Marriage cert would be useful to give some idea of their ages and if they had been married before

I am hazarding a guess in view of location, but this Edward is 10 years younger! Glitterbaby is right, you need ages from marriage cert.

FreeBMD has a possible marriage for Cynthia in 1946

Must admit I can't find a likely death for Edward, given that they had children born after the 2 deaths above.
Might be worth getting that cert for Eliza?

Beat me to it GB!
Looks like Cynthia had one daughter but can't pin down a marriage for her.
Elusive aren't they!

Looks like another man doesn't it.
Nadine, as you know about Barbara, do you know if her father was alive when she married in 1945?

So Douglas might not be the child of Edward

All this information is great. Thank you guys!

Just found a tree on Ancestry with Barbara and Douglas on but with parents names as William Serpell Job and Bessie Symons. (Bessie i suppose could have been a nickname)

Unfortunately Jan i dont know if her father was alive when she married.

You are right - above spouse is Bessie.
According to an Ancestry tree both Douglas and Barbara are children of William and Bessie - obviously impossible to tell if they are correct re. Barbara.

Nadine Report 26 Dec 2012 13:25

There are 2 trees with this on. Think im going to have to dig deeper to confirm this for sure.

brummiejan

brummiejan Report 26 Dec 2012 13:28

It's just a strange co-incidence that there are 2 Job/Symons marriages at roughly the same time and place.
The Ancestry tree seems quite thorough so they may be correct.
