The Huddersfield  & District Family Society have just published a book about the History of Hepworth & District, it may be of interest to members of Rootschat with connections in that area

Sandra, i have been a "rootschatter" since 2005, and i am still astounded by the cooperation and assistance that exists on this site, other sites have been and gone, even with paying contributors but Rootschat has waxed and never waned . A large THANK YOU to you and other chatters

Her parents William E & Rosetta Bacon are in the 1911 cen. located at 206 Gleadless Rd. Heeley, Sheffield along with  Eva A, but from this point she vanishes, can anyone find a mention of her ?

( leads to a possible marriage of a George Whellem Douthwaite June qtr 1883 Scarborough to a Sarah Jane Brown possibly?)

Emily M had an aunt Sarah Jane Brown b.1861 Wootton Lincs. so this looks like the marriage
                    Thanks again. bodger

Just a clarification, my father referred to in the first post G E Bacon, b. 1906 Keighley, d. 1980 Barnsley was not in the R.N. he was in the R.A.F. enlisted 1943 Cardington ser. no. 1884157. Incidentally with the previous  advice from  Roots chatters i obtained his birth cert, thank you.

Just to put a cat amongst the pigeons my father married 4 or 5  times ? see
https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl (marriages, 1929 - 1957, west riding George e bacon)
I can affirm all except the 1955 one with Dorothy Lockwood, my sister from his first marriage says that 4 times married is correct ! but i seem to have a childhood recollection of an another one, i have not applied for a cert on the queried  marriage maybe i should just to clarify matters, i wonder if he is the G. E. Bacon referred to in the latest posts ? bodger
