Thank you very much for this information and very fast. The date 4th January she has been on my mind. How can I find what did she die from? Her husband Henry White I would like to know more, I know he was a master butcher she was a dressmaker.
Where did they live the exact address?
Her mothers maiden name was Lovie and we have a paper that said she was aged 52 when she died.
How may I find more information?????

Annie Many Thanks
