Re Vera, she was born in Pontefract

Births Mar 1914 (>99%)
SHAW Vera Meredith Pontefract 9c 324

There are no other Shaw/Meredith births for Pontefract, but they might have moved?

Too many Vera Shaw marriages to know which might be her, but this is one in the right can look for others on is easy to use.

Marriages Dec 1939 (>99%)

Shaw Vera Briggs Pontefract 9c 445
