Gray family - Missing BMDs?
« on: Sunday 16 April 17 22:45 BST (UK) »
I have a Frederick Gray (b 1876, Broadwell, Oxfordshire) with his wife Elizabeth (b1879, Northleach, Gloucestershire).
In 1901 they are living in Northleach.
Class: RG13; Piece: 2451; Folio: 93; Page: 19
By 1911, they have moved to Cwmcarn, Crosskeys, Newport, Monmouthshire.
Class: RG14; Piece: 32043; Schedule Number: 251

Children:
Arthur W Gray, b1897, Northleach
Beatrice L Gray, b1900, Northleach (1901) or Farmington (1911)
Norah Ellen Gray, b 1903, Abercarn, Monmouthshire

Frederick & Elizabeth have apparently been married for 14 years.

HOWEVER:
I can't find a marriage?
And I can't find any birth registrations for the children?

So, what was Elizabeth's surname?!

I bet the answer is staring me in the face, but it's really annoying! ;D

Hi

Yes, the man lodging with them in 1911 is her brother is it not ?

Saw them in 1891 and noticed the three year age gap and wondered if that was the case, but you beat me to an answer

We're so efficient here Groom,even though it is bedtime  ;D

I was a little worried why they'd marry in Pontypridd when they were still in Glos having kids?
