When and where did May die as there is no May McLaughlan death linking to a 1900 birthyear

Carole, good question as there's no M Cairns married to a McL death either?

I done a search for name May without a surname for 1900 Greenock, do any of these names ring a bell?...

ROBERTSON MAY 1900
564/1 461
Greenock East
   
STURROCK MAY 1900
564/1 531
Greenock East

Depending on her age on marriage she may have been born 1899 & there's a few on SP named May (leaving surname blank) in Greenock with different surnames?

This May Cairns was 27 and single born Glasgow

Rosie...not according to SP  ::)

Something strange about 'May Cairns' overall as nothing is fitting so far apart from her name on her marriage & obviously her kids' births  ???

I'm wondering if she was unofficially adopted as a Cairns i.e. born with a different surname at least although maybe a different forename too?

Hi Annie & Carole

An online tree suggests that May died in Birkenhead on 13 June 1951, and had been living in Rock Ferry - there is also an address listed.

Not much info on Alexander bar he died 1962.

They also list Mays mother as SLYMES - I think that comes from the marriage cert, it looks a bit like Slymes to me.

Thanks Claire!

Does seem to be the correct person.
Would have been good if OP had given some extra info. to save some time & effort.

Seems a few things may be wrong re dates/places?

How old was she on death?

Hi Annie

May was registered as being 50 years old when she died.

Claire

Have to add another tree that I spotted has her husband dying in 1944 as opposed to the 1962 entry on another tree.

parents John Cairns - labour (deceased) and mother Margaret Cairns - maiden surname Symes.

This may be a possible being as we can't find a marriage & the only Margaret Syme in Greenock (without a middle name)?

Death

SYME MARGARET 79 (b c1875)
1954
564/ 990
Greenock

However, without a birth for May it's only speculation.
