Marian F Sewter was married before to a Carter. Bernard was born before the marriage to Arthur so his surname is Carter.

I am researching Arthur Tidd born 1891 in Essex. He was killed in action on 29 March 1918 Flanders France. He was married to Rose Emma Howe 17 April 1911. They had 4 children (Rose, Arthur, Joseph and John) I have all the information on the children. What I am researching is Arthur Tidd (1891) his family. I think I know the parents but am trying reseach if he had brothers or sisters. I cannot find them anywhere. Any information be helpful. Thanks Jane

If you are researching Arthur Tidd born in 1891, then the first place to start would be his birth and marriage certificates, for full details of his parents.

Was the information found for you in 2012 accurate, as you have not acknowledged it?

Address on Josiah's birth cert should confirm if above family is correct or not.

EDIT: Arthur Tidd (junior) born 1891 confirms his address as 38 Langthorne Street, West Ham, on his military record. He also states his mother, Sarah and sister Eliza, live at 14 Langthorne Street. So it seems that above Roberts family is correct.- I wonder why the change of name??


oldschoolboy Report 2 Jan 2015 11:34

Hi Gritty, thank you so much for all the information all the dates are correct will
check address on josiahs birth certificate + understand why unable to trace due to name change but everything fits....

regards Jane.
