Thanks all for your input. Suppose will remain a mystery unless there are some rellies out there who know anything. My contacts who might have known have sadly died. Seems strange that she should pick such a distinct name for a "husband". My thought is that she must have known or heard of him as her son worked on the railways and she lived 50yds from Hagley station when she got pregnant. Also Hagley and Hartlebury Station(where he lived in the station house when he died) are just 12mins away by train. When she moved to Bromyard she could have kept the Foley name as her son was a Foley, and therefore it would be assumed she was married. Ironically his wife Amy died the same year as Gertrude Nancy.

Think its time to put this to bed!!
