Hi Allan,

What's the time frame? 20th century?

Possible marriage?
Dec 1926 Hendon 3a 854
Robert E Gurr - Mabel M Ball

I see 2 children's births registered in Hendon in the following years.

The marriage cert would tell you their ages and fathers' names.

For now, I can spot these possible deaths:

Robert E Gurr age 78
Mar 1964    Thanet 5b 1016

Mabel M (or P? image not very clear) Gurr age 74
Dec 1966 Thanet 5f 664

Do you reckon they sound likely, or are they too old?

If you think they're the ones then we have:

Birth Mabel May Ball - Jun 1892 Hendon 3a 221
Her christening shows parents Charles (a Carter) and Anna Martha.

Birth Robert Edwin Gurr
Sep 1885 Ticehurst 2b 113
Possible 1891 census shows Robert born Ticehurst, living at Tunbridge/Hildenborough with parents Frederick and Sarah.

Possible first marriage:

Sep 1907 Tonbridge 2a 1769
Robert Edwin Gurr to either Alice Hall or Nellie Alice Sales

The 1911 census should confirm his wife as Alice and show a 2 year old son Robert Alfred.

It would be safe to get a certificate or 2 (Robert's marriage to Mabel) to make sure we're looking at the right people.
