Sadly no except they lived in Canton, Cardiff, she is 92 next month and can just about remember her grandfather Ernest Taylor, even though she says she used to stay at their house.  One thing she did tell me was that they were very strong members of the Salvation Army in Canton and Ernest played the drum.

Thank you I had found Ireland Marriage but not the death.  have looked on the 1939 records and cant find either of them, have tried Cardiff and Glamorganshire.  It seems to be the closest I have got.  The death is most likely, cant think there would be many Eva G M's.  Will keep looking at the link.  Thanks again NEATWHEAT

Good grief, Rosie, how did you find that!
I was going round in circles last night looking for them in Cardiff!
It is looking very promising now.

Pure luck  ;D
I looked for possible children on freebmd found Winifred 1920 - Her transcription was correct - free search put her with Ernest J Roland.

There is a service record for Ernest James Ireland, with first wife named as NOK, Olive Jessie Nicholas, 2 sons born. She died 1919.

Don't know if helps, but gives his age.
