Unfortunately the owner of the very comprehensive anc tree is not a direct relative and does not feel able to contribute to CWGC.  :'(  So drawn a blank on that one.

As I have said before on here, it is amazing how many times that you draw a blank because they are very, very distantly related.  Taking a second look, this particularly ancestry tree has 69,654 people in it, so not surprising to get a negative response.

Sister Anaabella Christie Dakers married Edward Arthur Parton - 1899

Annabella C Dakers - Edward Arthur Parton - 1899 - 282/3 137 - St Clement.
This union may have had 4 daughters and 3 sons - so could be a possible line to check.

May be a red herring...

The newspaper report of Annabella and Edward's marriage notes that he was 'of Liverpool'. Could they have returned there?

Based on this, there is a 1946 passenger list entry for a 1902 born Edward Arthur Parton of 147 Childwell Road, Liverpool travelling on a 90 day business trip to California. Nearest relative at home being a Mrs A C Parton, also of 147 Childwell Road. No indication if this Edward was single or married, so can't tell if Mrs A C Parton was his wife or mum.
