An Edwin Benjamin of the correct age died in Barnet in 1917. Might be worth checking out.
Isobel
Also he is in the 1911 census living quite close to Charlotte.

In the circumstances it would be a good idea to purchase a copy of Joseph Benjamin's will and see what exactly it says about the relationship between himself and Charlotte
https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/#wills
from memory it costs 10 or 15 pounds.
Haven't really found much on Edwin but see a record of a Mrs Edwin Benjamin. Widow. sailing to New York in 1921 - same age as Charlotte. Possibly he died there ?

I reached the same conclusion and the 1911 census (address and occupation) throws a bit of light on it. Also found her son sailing to Brazil in 1926 from the same address that 90 year old Joseph died at in 1928 50a Portsdown Road W.9 - so a definite tie in there

What an mazing result!
From the info Charlotte Benjamin gives in 1911 and on the 1939 register it seems to check out as well. No sign of the husband in either though, she says she is married and can't find a Roberts/Benjamin marriage around 1903 anywhere.

You can make an appointment with the Military Archives to see the file.

He doesn't seem to have applied for a pension though.

Anne Loughlin ? this area is beside the 9th Lock bridge Grand Canal

That must be her !!!!
I just searched under her name and another record has Mrs Anne Laughlin of 9th Lock Clondalkin in 1904, has a nurse child named Patrick Scanlan who is being taken away from her as she 'has absolutely no control over him'

I'll have a look back and see was it 15 or 13

I think Christopher Byrne was a nurse child with a 'Mrs Anne Loughlin' of Clondalkin in 1901 and she subsequently adopted him - but can't see any trace of her.
Also an interesting note:
"15/5/00 - Patrick McCann of 15 Townsend Street asking to be allowed to visit two nurse children named Christopher & Richard Byrne.
Cannot comply"
Wonder who he was ?

Sorry no. Christopher was discharged from the workhouse 25 Jan 1897 so possibly to his mother (who seems to have died by 1901) I'd think he was either a nurse child or in an institution by 1901. Also haven't followed up on Thomas but I'd start looking in the deaths. I'll have a look see if he turns up in the workhouse records tomorrow.
