 :)fOUND SOME MORE INFO!-on Alexander Robinson--had a disabled? brother Herbert! and 3 children Alexander J,   Rosemary,   and Margaret-believed to have married a Heath in 1970?.
I am totally jiggered here-obviously Alexander died 1958-no idea where his resting place is-tried Allerton and Toxteth--would dearly love to know this above all-so next time I am in UK--AS ALWAYS visit my favourite  city!!! I could  place some flowers there for a  real hero! ( Police) ,and gentleman--who cared for his disabled brother-when no-one else would.
Would anyone know about this pawnshop at all?
Maybe some of the children are alive?-but I doubt if Herbert is--so sorry have no more info.
I am 67 yrs old--so time is also running out for me to find     my old Granpa !!xx

 :o Wow-have you a crystal ball??

To be honest I had no idea of her date of birth or death-!!
-I  assumed she had taken granpa's surname -for respectability!--Alexander was still married to Ellen (BOYLE).
This gives me  such hope that all this info you have very kindly passed on-may lead to finding his final resting place. Thank You

She might not have married him.

She could just have assumed use of his name, or be known by it, to the informant on the death certificate.

Also, it might not be her.
