Isn't that Elsie M Fields (Young)too young  :-\



Yes Rosie she is! Which is one reason why I question whether Edith Ella Fields and Elsie M Fields are the same person

I wonder if she could be known as Ellen rather than Ella  :-\

Free search 1939
Edith Ellen   Field (Fields)   1896   
Bury St Edmunds M.B.   Suffolk

By playing with the search she was born in June 1896.

Mum Clara died 7 Nov 1944
Report of the funeral in the Biggleswade Chronicle, Friday 17 November 1944
DEATH OF MRS. C. FIELD
The death occurred on November 7th of Mrs. Clara Field, of 65, Potton Road, at  the age of 79 years. Mrs. Field formerly lived in Sandy opposite the Station and later in Ivel Lane. Her husband, a platelayer on the railway, died about six years ago.
The funeral took place at Sandy Cemetery on Friday, the Rev. J. Rigden Green (Baptist pastor) officiating.
The mourners were: Mr. G. Field, Mr. and Mrs. B. Field, Mr. and Mrs. C. Field, Mr. P. Field, Mr. F. Field, Mrs. L. Field (sons and daughters-in-law), Mrs. Ferman and Mrs Craddock (daughters), Mr. F. Field, Mr. and Mrs. T. Kilby (brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law), Sister Nancy, Mr. and Mrs. L. Young. Mr. L. Field was unable to attend owing to service overseas.
Wreaths were from all the relatives, Mrs. Pates and family, Trinity Sisterhood, Mrs. Mead, Mrs. Pepper, the twins Peter and Ann, and the Field family at Havelock Road.

So all the family gathered for Clara's funeral in 1944. Was Edith Ella there?
How many daughters did George and Clara have?
1. Ida May Field, born 1893
She might have married George Arnott in Biggleswade district, Sep 1921 (Ida M Fields)
If so, a possible death, Dec 1937, Bedford
Ida May Arnott, age 44

2. Edith Ella Field, born 1896

3. Violet Louisa Fields, born 1901, registered Sep qtr.
It looks like she could have married Albert J Fermor in Tonbridge in 1923? Thus she would be Mrs "Ferman", one of the daughters mentioned in the newspaper.
Death, August 1989, Brighton
Violet Louisa Fermor, d-o-b 9 June 1901

If there were no more daughters, that would leave Mrs Craddock.
