Yes, sorry Philip - I had not fully digested all that you had done on Lilian :)
No need for apologies.  I hope I didn't seem rude (I certainly didn't intend to)  :)
I'm off to hunt for Lilian in 1911 and see what else I can find
Philip

ADDED
death Mar qtr 1967 Bristol vol 7b p188 HART Lilian S J age 90


1911 census, Bristol (all born in Bristol)
SEWARD James, head , 63, fitter
SEWARD Sarah Jane, wife
SEWARD Lilian Sarah Jane, daughter, 34, corset machinist
SEWARD Winifred Marion, 20, box maker
SEWARD Percy, grandson, 13

ADDED - Percival is Lilian's son (as found by avm228)

Yep, that's the same as I found too! (I have no idea how to find census refs I'm afraid!) Makes me wonder what kind of life Lilian had!

Also, I only discovered today that Beatrice had step siblings (our family never knew) and now she has a half brother as well! wow

Ah! I see! Do you think Percy and Beatrice shared a father?
Why would Lilian not keep Beatrice as she had Percy do you think?
This will doubtless never be known fully!

There are a few ROCKETT men* in Bristol , Clifton, Barton Regis and other places.  I wonder which one was the father!

NO - not Elton John!  ;D
Please help me to help you by citing sources for information.

Hi all,

Update is that I have now received Beatrices birth certificate and her mother is Lilian Sarah Jane Seward, the father section is (unsurprisingly) blank.

The first time I see her using Sandford is when she gave it as her maiden name at her wedding. My Grandfather was also given Sandford as his middle name so it must have meant something to her. I find this odd as Ernest Sandford died when she was still very young (7 years old) unless she knew that he was her biological father?

Thoughts?

And thank you
