Hi Ermy,

I did check WW1 pensions, Medal Cards etc and even CWGC site. but none jumps out at me to be honest, i know there are a few FCB or FB with no age on CWGC site.

Sarah, My gt grandfather was married with about 7 children, then he meet and ran off my gt grandmother whilst the youngest of his children with his first wife was only 5. He had 5 children with my gt grandmother which includes my grandmother, i know they got married but to this day i can't find the marriage and i have been searching for 2 years now.

On Annie's second marriage in 1918 she was living at 100 Snakes Lane, Woodford Green. I have searched for this on the 1911 census, and there is no number 100, so this address could be ficticious.

Thank you all for your help and input, very much appreciated

Hello Sarah,

Yes she did say she was married on the 1911 census.

I did say that to my oh saying she may have married Mr John Spencer whilst Frederick was still alive, all he said
no way.

Oh yes it does happen, even one or two in my tree are bigamists

Good evening


I am researching my other halfs family.


I have Frederick Charles Barton born 1874 Southampton

parents John Henry Barton & Anne Stride.

The family moved to West Ham, Essex between 1881 - 1891, I have all the family census upto 1911 apart from Frederick Barton he is missing on 1911 census.

Frederick married Annie Susan Craske on 11 Feb 1897 at St Johns Church West Ham Essex. They had a son called Edgar George W Barton born 1902, Finsbury London. I have the birth cert for Edgar, Edgar is my OH's father, Edgar died 1975

I found Annie Susan Barton nee Craske in service in 1911 census with her son Edgar, Head of household was John William Spencer 5 Scratton Road, Southend on Sea Essex.

Annie Susan Barton nee Craske remarried  to John William Spencer 8 Aug 1918, West Ham Essex. The marriage cert say's that Annie was a Widow
My problem is i can not find a suitable death index for Frederick Charles Barton. I did order a death cert for a Frederick C Barton 1914 St Pancras, it was not my Frederick.

I do have all census returns for the Craske family and Annie's death cert

If anyone can help, i would be most grateful

Hi Mare,

Thanks for your reply..

I have had no pm from anyone.

I can understand the copyright issues.. I am not even sure who replied to my post yesterday.. And wondered if that person or persons can pm me and we can do it via email away from the forum.

I'll send a pm to the moderator for this board

Hi Mare,

Yes i saw it after i posted it yesterday, i even had an email confirming a reply to it at 20-32 yesterday evening, i have only picked up the email in the last half hour or so. Click the link within the email and say theres an error occurred,the topic or board appears either missing or off limits to you.

If the board moderater has deleted the topic because of my parents might be living, i can assure him/her they are not alive, my father died last year after a long battle against cancer, my mother died this year after battling COPD.

These are the only wedding photos i have found of my parents, and would like the marks of the proof taken off if at all possible.

I did notice some odd paving at one of the churchyards which i did say to my brother i think they are headstones but you couldn't read them.

Thank you for the offer of look ups at Radnage Snooper.
I have many Brooks family offshoots all around Bucks, so it woud only be the Brooks/Brookes surname from about 1780 to 1870 about 100 years

Many many thanks Snooper, it is much appreciated
