Would someone do an electoral roll look up please. David Fitzgerald 1920 & 1926 should be living at 3 Princes Court Bethnal Green. Would like to know if married and who else living at that address.
Thank you.

This is the wrong board for this type of request


1920 with a James and Mary Fitzgerald
1926 just with a James Fitzgerald
1924 just with James
1922 Just with james
1918 just with James

So no idea if Mary is a sister or wife

Electoral rolls for those years only included women 30 years old and older who met a property qualification to be included

So unlikley that a mans "wife" would be listed on the electroll roll,

EDIT, women over 30, who were occupiers of property or married to occupiers, were entitled to vote.

It was not until the Equal Franchise Act of 1928 that women over 21 were able to vote and women finally achieved the same voting rights as men.
