« on: Thursday 01 March 18 18:47 GMT (UK) »
hi,
have been doing my tree for a while but am stuck on a couple of things

nelly bailey(1880-?) married ben j hucks {1897-1937) (1900)cant seem to find when she died

ben j hucks remarried alice bailey (1882-1955)nee fesey (1916)

charlie bailey(1880-1912 i think) was married to alice bailey nee fesey
all birmingham west mids

trying to find when nelly bailey hucks died and if nelly and charlie bailey were brother and sister thanks hope this makes sense

Benjamin's military records give details of his children and he mentions that his wife Nelly nee Bailey who he married at Registry Office Birmingham, 1st December 1900 was deceased.

Benjamin attested 15th November 1915, so Nelly dies between March 1902 and November 1915

Nellie Ellen Florence born 30th March 1902
John Henry born 22nd March 1901

1911 for Nellie Hucks born 1902 living with Charles & Alice Bailey. Her relationship is recorded as niece, which would imply that Charles was her uncle and therefore brother of Nellie -

In 1911, Benjamin appears to be in a lodging house in Coventry, with his surname written as Hooks. He claims to be widowed.
