I have since found out that the marriage of Grace A Blackwell to James Flitter in 1915, Wokingham, was not to my Jim Flitter. That James was from the Hampshire branch of the Flitters. He was born in 1890 in Kingsclere. My Jim was from the Berkshire branch of the extended Flitter family and was born in 1867 in Bradfield.
