If they were step children then am guessing they were from her second hubbys first marriage?

Their surnames will be the clue

How much full research on her and both marriages have you done so far ?

She married HENRY Poynton in 1921.

The step-children would have been his offspring from a previous marriage

You'll need to look for that marriage.........and the children it produced.

Unless, of course, the step-children were from her FIRST marriage..............

.........................is there any name info for them on the headstone?

Hi
Thank you for getting back to me your help is appreciated.
All I know is margaret Turnbull lowes was born in Murton I think in 1888, she died in 1964 and I visited the grave last week.
My mum told me she married mr Wilson but he died I First World War,they had 5 children, the she married my grandad Harry poynton.
The names of the step children Joseph and Elizabeth are on the head stone but I know they were not Wilson or poynton how do I find out?

It's not accurate to say that Turnbull was 'added when her father died.................and it wouldn't be logical, in any case.

her BIRTH was registered with the name..............

Put freebmd in your favourites.............and use it to look for info

What is the precise wording on the headstone in connection with the 'step children'?

How do you know that they were not Poynton or Wilson? What proof do you have?
