Hi Gillian
I put this on thread Fourteen but as ive started a new thread .
There was only 2 Herbert Frank Kilby on Ancestry
One birth 1886 Leicester Vol 7a Page 240 the other 1910 .
On the death i found of Herbert F Kilby it said estimated birth 1886 Death being 1914. So i would imagine that is the one .
For the other info you asked Mike might help as he knows more about it then me
Best wishes Bev

I know that my grandmother married a Walter J Mann in Leicester 2nd qtr 1927. (he is my mums dad) my mum passed in Oct 1977.
I am not sure if the Walter Mann who married Ada Rutter in 1899 and had a son- Ernest Thomas 1901- IS the same Mann who married my granma? I beleive that it probably IS & if so, what happened to his 1st marriage, did Ada die & when? Did they have any other children? Walter Mann didnt marry my Gran until 1927, but her first huband Herbert Kilby, died in 1914. any ideas? - my gran had two children after 1914 - Robert Kilby 1st qtr 1917 & Irene Kilby (later changed to Mann) in July 1922 - who was Roberts Dad?

Hi Mike

Have found 2 possible Powells of mine on the Welford road disc but on Hannah's notes (Hannah Powell Feb 1968) it says


Any idea what it all means, there is a Thomas Powell with the same address (Foundry Lane ) who has sub section E1 mentioned too in his notes, he dies a year later same plot number

UPDATE they must be my Powells as the Warris family are in the same plot so bingo! (Warris is Hannah's maiden name)

Hi Gillian
I put a search in FreeBMD just for Fowkes in Leicester and 7 marriages came up from 1907 onwards. If you have a look you might recognise a spouse name among the results

Thanks Elaine - thats a great help. Walter Mann (jnr) born 1900 was my grandad and I know very little about him & his family.
Is there anything about the Manns in earlier census? Also, Ive no idea of his death? (my gran-his wife and my mum have both passed away a long time ago. I want to find his living relatives, but seem a slow process - any ideas?
