I have found an electoral roll for 1936 and 37 with a George Robert Harrison and a Florence Maud Harrison at 26 Dunholme Road Edmonton, I wonder if that is them?

Benjamin and Harriet Saunders live next door at 28.

Ah that’s interesting.  They seem to have moved away from that address in about 1938 - briefly, it seems, to 87 Stockton Rd Enfield, but they were not there at the beginning of the war.

The City of London birth was registered as Florence Mabel Saunders though (Dec qtr 1911 with mmn Mortimer), and she was baptised as Florence Mabel Saunders on 10 Dec 1911.  I wonder how certain Peter is that this was the Florence who married Mr Harrison?

Further mulling on this, I see that the birth of a Florence Maud Saunders (mmn Gore) was registered in Edmonton Mar qtr 1908 - could this be George Robert Harrison’s wife instead?

That is beginning to be my feeling on this too. ;D
Hence why her name is Florence Maud on all Electoral rolls.

Electoral rolls have them both at 5 Hawthorne Way Edmonton until at least 1958.
In that year E R (might still be alive) and George H join them there.

Florence M Saunders married Reginald J Cooper in Islington, 1936 qtr 2
No idea if it's the right lady.
Another one married Alfred C Harris in Islington in 1937

Good stuff jonw65.

I wonder therefore if she died in Hillingdon, Jun qtr 1989, as Florence Mabel Cooper - birthdate 23.11.1911.

Added: yes I think this is her.  She seems to have been with her paternal aunt Daisy Louise Saunders b 1890 in Herts just before the war.
