This thread would be much better off on the Westmorland board. Beetham is 35 miles from  Cumberland.

True ... the nearest thing to Cumberland is someone called Workthington. :)
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

I have just studied the armed forces record for Septimus -parts are very faint but this is what I think they say

Marriage
Sarah Smith
Sarah carter widpow
spinster crossed through
marriage 26/05/1916 Reg Office Skipton

It looks like at first he had put Sarah Smith then underneath spinster
but then realised he should have put widow -so between Sarah Smith spinster -Sarah Carter widow has been entered and then spinster crossed through -as I said it is very faint

then underneath the 3 children are listed with the d.o.b.'s I posted previously . The 3 children are bracketed together and in the left hand column is written (what looks like) illegitimate. The 2 eldest children are bracketed together to the right and written is (what looks like) B/C ret verified 14/11/1916 -it seems the eldest 2 children's birth certs had to be shown to prove they were Septimus' children (maybe he had his name put on the birth cert -as they were registered as "Coulton" ) the 3rd child (Frederick) was born overseas
So it looks like Sarah Carter married Mr Smith - Mr Smith may have died -or Sarah left him to be with Septimus -it seems they lived as man and wife and had children  but didn't marry until 1916 - maybe Mr Smith didn't died until then - or maybe he was in the armed forces and went missing and a period of time had to elapse before he could be declared "deceased"??

I'll see if I can find Sarah earlier

To, clearly & Geoff-E,

Thank you for your input, however, you will clearly see from the responses I have had, which I am truly grateful, a great deal had been unearthed.

These replies have helped me enormously and although some have created other issues which I am in the throes of resolving being pedantic over Westmorland or Cumberland is somewhat insignificant.

If you are both able to add to what has already been offered I'd be pleased to hear from you further.

Thanks, David

I am fairly convinced William Henry Smith (Sarah's husband ) was alive in 1911 - so Sarah must have left him for Septimus - am finding it difficult to find a death for William Henry as there are so many with similar name - and I don't know where he moved to ??
