Now i hope this is right but my Grandfather told my mum that
Kate remarried in 1914 to another Smith, Thomas Smith

Their marriage certificate should confirm if she was a widow and her father's name, this looks to
be the marriage entry on FreeBMD

Jun 1914 Bakewell vol 7b page 1918
Kate SMITH to Thomas SMITH


Kate died in childbirth to twins in 1916.


Is this the death entry you are referring to?

Mar 1916 Bakewell 7b 953
Kate SMITH age 49 (born c 1867)

I can't see any twin births Mar 1916 with mmn Bircumshaw

there are these birth entries

Basford        Sep 1914 A SMITH (male)mmn BIRCUMSHAW
Chesterfield Mar 1915 W SMITH (male) mmn         ''
Chesterfield Dec 1916 C SMITH (male)mmn
Basford Sep 1917 E Smith (male)
Chesterfield Jun 1919 M Smith (female)
Basford Mar 1922 E Smith (female)

The above birth entries may relate to this marriage
Basford Sep 1913 Thomas E Smith to Lois Bircumshaw
the only way to confirm parents names would be to obtain a b/c of one of the children

I did find a twin birth (male & female)
Basford Mar 1916 vol 7b page 429 mmn ALLCOCK

There is this marriage entry
Basford  Mar 1911 Fred SMITH female name on same page Mabel ALLCOCK

there are many Smith mmn Allcock birth entries in Basford between
Dec 1911 -  1922 see FreeBMD http://www.freebmd.org.uk/
have not entered full names for Smith/Bircumshaw as I do not know if they are still living

Hi Forestfloor I think I am back to square one . I have had a
look at Edward Albert 's birth certificate which  I had. It gives Father as Edward Smith which makes me think this was his registered name as his death certificate also  gives Edward. Young Edward was born in Robin Hoods bay and my feeling is he was called Edward as he would have been Edward seniors first born . Ernest being not his son as far as I can surmise. So basically still searching for Edward senior's parents. Any more info gratefully received sync from you Ladyhawk thanks C the Great.
