No Somerset lot don't look like it is them - so maybe they are 'Turners' in 1911!

Just in case you don't have all the children, a bit more info from FreeBMD - edited from my 14.23 post:

"I found a May Tucker but she was born March 1899 (before the marriage) or one in Islington in 1900" EDIT: If she had a middle name then there are more potentials.

" I can find one for Constance 1904 in Hackney which covers Clapton" EDIT based on shown as Beaty on Turner Census

Births Dec 1904 (>99%)
Tucker Constance Beatrice Hackney 1b 423

"Dorothy in West Ham in 1911" EDIT in fact there are two in West Ham one in 1910 and one in 1911 "and the other two in Willesden" EDIT (easier to find)

Births Mar 1913 (>99%)
Tucker George H Robertson Willesden 3a 533

Births Dec 1915 (>99%)
TUCKER Walter E ROBERTSON Willesden 3a 455

Hi AnnMarieG

So I am not sure that we are any closer to the correct death cert of your grandfather George Henry Tucker!

You mentioned your great grandfather dying in the workhouse in Camberwell - so there is a Camberwell connection - which means it could be the Camberwell George, but you would need to try to find out if perhaps he changed his occupation from his trade of Master Cobbler to Merchant Seaman. Maybe enquiries to Clarks Museum might turn up something? Also Merchant Seaman records can be found at Royal Museums Greenwich (try this link) which probably goes to National Archives - if there are records it might show next of kin.

At least it might help to eliminate the Camberwell death completely (or not).

Thanks Jansmith and JannieAnnie.
I have written to Clarks museum hoping they will give me some clues to him.fingers crossed and will look into the Merchant Seaman records as you suggest.fingers crossed again.
