Doesn't come up as a 'match' on ancestry because they have shown the reference for Dorothy as 'page 1846' rather than '1849'.    If you look at original GRO page it is clearly '1849'.

Yes, looks like FreeBMD is the source of the error which has then been carried through to Ancestry - I have submitted a correction to FreeBMD.

Thank you all for your posts. I have full details of this family. I am related to them.
The mystery is what happened to the children between 1924 and 1939 after which I have full details.
No one to ask in family all deceased.

Itís hard to help if you donít provide the details which you already have.

What documentation do you have from 1924?

Are you saying you know where they all were in 1939?
