Thanks Spider Monkey

Your first post would seem to be rock solid.

I have a slight problem though. I had it that George K was married to an Ada Butler b. 1902
(Unfortunately, I have no idea how I came by that idea).

It was possibly  something to having  it on good authority (albeit hearsay) that 'George was married twice - his first wife died.  2 sons from first marriage were George and Percy.
Second marrriage:
Marjorie Alice
Lionel Henry Kitchener
Arthur Isaac William
Phyllis Lorraine Nancy
and Dorothy May (disabled) and that they lived in Church Lane Windsor'

Is there any way to find out more about  Ada Butler please?

He definitely marries at least once more - check out the 1911 census  ;)  He may well marry again - i'll do some checking

While on an all too short visit to Durham Archives recently, I had quite an interesting chat with one of the archivists there who seemed to specialise in Mining History. He put me on to the idea that Elias b. Whitehall c. 1795 would have had exposure to the fact that coal was being bought into London from the north-east at that time.
As it happens I subsequently found that an Elias Marsh was in the merchant navy about 1845 ​for 9 years.

Information was on the National Archives site. Ref to follow. (If I can find where I put it; )

I think that if it this was the same man, bycontemporary  standards at least,  at about 60 he may  probably have been a bit old to be the same  man.  His son Elias b. Bishop Wearmouth, Sunderland. 1831 would be a bit young perhaps. But at least this impli3es the period that he moved north.

Would anybody like to think as to other ways of looking for more information on  this idea (other than the official certificate route) please.

It looks like Monica's parents are Arthur and Caroline Green.  Arthur born c. 1873 to William and Lucy E Green.  On 1891 census Arthur is with his family, including a sister Edith E Green  :-\ so possible aunt to Monica.
