It seems that Frederick Loveridge may have been a coffin bearer at his paternal uncle Jamesí funeral in 1931...

Thank you to everyone for the welcomes to RootsChat. I am so amazed at all the swift responses and genuine help. Thank you. I and descendants of the Loveridge family still live in Axminster and surrounding area. It was fascinating to discover the two brothers and their lives. My next mission is to visit Bristol and the Muller Orphanage records when they are up and running again. Frederick Loveridge came back to this area and married and farmed locally. He had several children and I grew up with their descendants! My family hadn't heard of the orphanages at all and I donít know if it was known of in the generation above my father. As I said in earlier post, James Loveridge, my great great grandfather was Isaacís brother. He stayed in the local area, married and had three children Elsie ( my great grandmother) a son Lisle and another daughter Lottie. He was very well respected locally and there was quite a lengthy piece about his funeral in the local papers. I will go back to that and see if either Frederick or Isaac were at the funeral...
thank you again for all your help.

Thank you for the information, I know that Isaacís father William was the landlord of the local pub, The Red Lion, Axminster and he was killed by a train. There was a detailed gory inquest in the local papers. Isaac and his wife ran an Ironmongers in the town and James, his brother took over the pub briefly from his brother. My great grandmother was born in the pub. I think that Frederick came back to the area in later life, married and had a farm. It seems that Albert was in London and became a cabinet maker. I didnít know that they had kept in touch and it is nice to know. I am pretty sure that Isaac and Sarah didnít have any more children. There is a hint in local papers that they had a drink problem but nothing conclusive. I should order the death certificates. I will also check papers again for an inquest for either of them.

Albert was born 1879 in Axminster and Frederick was born @1881 in Axminster. Their parents were IsaacD Loveridge and Sarah Pomeroy. Both parents died within a year of each other. Albert was in Boys Orphan Asylum Cheltenham in 1891 census and Frederick was in MŁllers orphanage Bristol. Their fatherís brother James was my great great grandfather and he was living in Axminster at the time.

I am looking for any information about these two boys who were my great great grandfatherís nephews. They were orphaned at ages 10 and 12 and then ended up in different orphanages miles from their birthplace, confused as Iím not sure why their extended family didnít take them in and why they were separated...
