hi again, thanks for the info.

Elsie Williams was most definantely my great grandmother i still remember visiting her when i was little.

im going to look on the 1911 census as suggested and see if my hunch is correct that Charles Joseph Penniall's father was Ernest Penniall

looks like another set of twins  together in census aged 29
I previously posted the statement below
parents look to be Joseph John Penniall( b 1881 Greenwich )and Florence Alice Pritchard who married St Olave mar qtr 1903.....
I might be wrong - tell me what you find on 1911 census
oakes,liverpool..neston..backford..poulton cum spittal(bebington)middlewich,cheshire......   sacht,helgoland  .......merrick,herefordshire adams,shropshire...tipping..ellis..  jones,garston,liverpool..hartley.dunham massey..barker. salford

Using FreeBMD again:

Deaths, December qtr 1933
Lambeth district     vol 1d, page 157

Penniall, John     age 0


So, although he didn't die at birth (that would be a stillbirth, and recorded on a different register), he died shortly afterwards.

ah I see, I also noticed that GARSTONITE posted Florence Alice Prichard and josph John Penniall were married in 1903 and had Charles in 1903 so she was probably pregnant before they were married :?
