that is correct Rosie.  When James died, Ellie married Bertram Owen.

perhaps you gave up too early, more you practice better you get.
FreeBMD is flexible tick the Phonetic box and utilise and for births & deaths also try the index here https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp
Searching for Wo*ley will find both spellings see info on wildcards https://www.freebmd.org.uk/search-help.shtml similar use of * and ? can be done on Ancestry and Findmypast
https://blog.findmypast.co.uk/maximise-search-returns-with-wildcards-family-history-2509437611.html
Order all certs from the GRO site, others sites just act as intermediaries and charge more

Thanks, Jon-nl   I have indeed looked at all the places you have suggested.   In fact, I have sent off for many b/d/m certs for my family and found a huge amount of information...But sometimes you just plain old get stuck:-(   Thanks again
