Somerset / Re: Who was Mr Fudge?

I had a look in the newspapers and this is the only article I could find about Mr. Fudge.

There is an old Rootschat thread regarding Frederick George Steggles. It includes a post from Frederick's grandchild, although the grandchild has not been on Rootschat since 2015.

There is an intriguing article in the Bury Free Press 09 February 1895 regarding an amateur dramatics group performing at Shepton Mallet.

The lead role was played by MR. F.G. STEGGLES, another part was played by MISS FLORENCE BANKS.
Mr. Steggles was said to have followed the stage profession before he settled in Shepton, he was born in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.   The rest of the cast were amateurs.

Look at the date of the article and the date of Frederick Banks' birth - 9 months  ;)

I haven't followed up on Mr. F.G Steggles yet but thought I should post this.

ADDED:  They also performed together at The Hall, Shepton Mallet in October 1894.

Just a few thoughts on what the newspaper reports have revealed...

I was thinking the same as ChrissieL, maybe she forgot her date of birth and on the 1939 Register chose Christmas day as her birthday so it was easier to remember.

Tweekymum, I realise your dad was very young, but does he have any recollection of celebrating Christmas day and his mum's birthday on the same day?  He did remember her black hair after all.

If she had an "eton crop" hairstyle,  it may have made her look younger.  The ages given appear to be estimated though and age 26 does fit.

I think Denesse rather than Denise was just how the person who took her details assumed it was spelt.

Strange that she remembered the name of the road in Newark where she was knocked down, could this mean she was familiar with Newark?

Did she really not remember her address or did she not want to tell anyone as she didn't want to go back.

Great finds Trish!!!  :o

Halifax is about 20 miles away from Featherstone, Yorkshire where she was in 1939.

Another newspaper article mentions she had black hair in an "eton crop" hairstyle. (just noticed the first newspaper report you posted mentions it)

Hi LM, I don't think there is anything to suggest she died before 1991, I was just pointing out that the register was updated by the NHS until then when they changed to a computerised system.

She is certainly hiding herself well.

I've been doing a bit of digging into the reasons for the 1939 note "see page 2 book 2" and found these 2 sections from the National Archives interesting.

8. What does it mean when an entry is crossed out and marked ‘See page…?’
These refer to ‘continuation entries’ where the line in the ‘postings’ column (see section 9.3) against a person’s name was full up, and a new line had to be created for any new entries.
The new line was added at the back of the enumeration book or sometimes at the back of the next book in large enumeration districts that comprised two or more books. You can browse to the page containing the continuation entry if it is in the same book; if it is in the next book you can use the browse function described in section 5.2 to go there, and then browse to the right page. However, this is very unlikely to contain any additional information.

9.4 The ‘postings’ column
Each entry in the Register extended across a double page spread. However, the accessioned digital record does not include the ‘postings’ column on the right hand page which contains various codes used for National Registration and National Health Service purposes. The National Archives does not have access to this column and the information it contains.

The article in the link below from "Lost Cousins" also has suggestions regarding what was on the right hand page that we cannot see.  It suggests the right hand page was used for NHS codes such as when someone visited a new doctor.  As Patricia had a "continuation entry" on another page she must have had a lot of entries, maybe Patricia moved around a lot.
The Register was used by the National Health Service who continued updating the records until 1991.

Interesting thread Tweekymum, I hope you find Patricia.
