   Thank you Carol and Roy for your suggestions.
   The fathers occupation is unknown, the marr cert only had "deceased"
   The George Wadey on the 1911 census did not have any "F" children and Mabel was the only girl at that stage. He was a George Thomas  :(

I found a Mabel Wadey  d of William and Ellen born abt 1883 in Brighton. This would have made her 64 if she married Ernest. So a thought re fibs when married.
I am trying to find some more abt the Mabel Victoria Edwards who died in 1984 Brighton Dist, the birth year 1906. She would do very nicely if I could discover more details. What are the chances of her death cert having spouses name?

I have had a look at the two Sussex born Mabel Wadeys, Brighton 1882 and Horsham 1894, but felt both were accounted for by other marriages.  The Brighton one appears to have married Albert Timms (1914) and the one in Horsham Owen Williams 1913.

There are far too many Mrs Edwards and Ernest Edwards in local street directories to focus on any in particular, and the couple married late and appeared to have no children.  I therefore feel your two best bets are to chase up those on Genes Reunited who appear to be descended from Mabel's siblings, or undertake an investigation of electoral records for the Scaynes Hill district 1930-1950.
Indexing Note: Serena & Diane on Genes with Mabel b1906 of Scaynes Hill in their ancestries, have both inadvertently spelled her name as MABLE.

Hello Eds

Been doing a bit of digging for your Mabel :)

I searched on FindMyPast for a Wadey birth ( did`nt put in Christian name) in Sussex,nothing comes up.

Maybe Mabel was`nt a Sussex girl & moved there.Also maybe her surname started out as WADE.

There is a Mabel Elizabeth Wade registered in Greenwich,1904
Q3  1D 1111

Due to Copyright Laws i cannot help with 1911

The above is only an idea.

Kind Regards
