This couple disappeared after the 1911 census which stated they had been married for 3 years. No children up until then. Advice please on identifying possible 2nd marriages for either of them. I have tried message boards without success. Are there any electoral rolls available to search for the years following the 1911 census please? Any help would be much appreciated

Ancestry have ER for London, but they have been electronically transcribed and a bit hit or miss.

There is a Frederick Henry Bass in 1919 at 103 Evering Rd Hackney, but no ages given. One other male registered at that address - Albert Houghton.

Thanks very much! All you stated is correct. The ER bit is interesting and brand new info. I'm all hopeful once more - and as you say Spring is just around the corner - not temperature wise here in Manchester!

Thanks again. I am always afraid of doing something wrong on this part of GR. Hopefully my yellow post it note will help in future.
