The Edith E Field who died in Manchester in 1942 was aged 57, so looks 10 years too  old to be yours.

The 1939 National Register has an Ethel Ellen Fields, born 1896, living in Bury St Edmunds?

It's definitely Edith Ella on both censuses I'm afraid.

I'm writing a book for my dad on his family as it seemed that my grandad and his siblings just grew up and scattered to the winds! He also went missing for six months during the war, served at Dunkirk and Monte Cassino so there are lots of stories to dig up I think!

Having looked at some other documents, I believe she was known as Elsie later on and may have married a Mr Young with a connection to Kettering. I can't find any marriage or death record for her though?

There's an Elsie M Fields married Joseph L Young in Kettering registration district in the Dec quarter 1933. You need the marriage cert to see if her  named father ties up with what you know about Edith. However living in Luton in 1939 was Joseph L Young b 1908_ and Elsie M Young (Smith) born 1914 who might be the same couple

Ooh thank you!

I'll look into this possibility! I have GenesReunited and have searched all through there and paid for docs etc so I promise I'm not just being lazy!!

There's 9 of them in total and I have a date and place of death for a few and a spouses name I found in an article about my GDads funeral but very little details besides! It's so frustrating!

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


I'm trying to trace some information about Edith Ella Fields - my great aunt.

Born in 1896/7,
She was the daughter of George (My Great Grandfather) and Clara Fields (Nee Kilby).

There is a chance she did marry a Mr Young but again, I can't find any trace! Am I looking in the wrong place?


Birth was registered June qtr 1896 so born before 30 June 1896

A tree on A*try has her marrying a Henry C BIRD Jun Qtr 1920 Bedford and dying Dec Qtr 1925 Aylesbury.

No idea if it's correct or not!
