Ada is still claiming she is married in 1939, so either they have separated or he is already in the army.

Quote
In 1930 Harriet is still listed at number 10, but Ada May Beard is at number 16 Nelson Row (with a Harding family). Frank not listed with her.

In 1931 Ada May Beard is at 4 Claremont Place, along with Bertie Butcher and Nora Minnie Butcher.
A free address search of the 1939 Register seems to shows that the situation was unchanged.

Quote
Ah, another Beard-Davis registered in 1929, then one in 1933.
A bit of a gap to the last one in 1941.


So Frank must have still been around or the last two children weren't his!

Groom, if you look for the 1933 birth on FreeBMD, and then click on the page number, 281, you see something interesting!

Electorals and newspapers are from the website that has the 1939 Register.

That may mean that the 1939 Portsmouth Frank is him  :-\    I wonder where all the children are before the war.

Yes I thought that too Rosie, if she went off with someone else,he may well have considered himself single again?

They wouldn't show in the 1939 register would they as they could still be alive?

I see what you mean about the 1933 birth, John. Looks as if they did separate doesn't it?

Likely had one in 1927. Not sure about any others. They may have separated?

Ah, another Beard-Davis registered in 1929, then one in 1933.

So we are looking for a 12 year old, a 10 year old and a 6 year old. I wouldn't think they were evacuated, as children were being evacuated to Brighton rather than away from there.

As you said they are probably still living so we won't find them
