and the only deaths I can find:

Deaths Mar 1934   (>99%)
BOARDMAN    George W    74    Wortley    9c   375   
Deaths Mar 1942   (>99%)
Boardman    George W    75    Liverpool N.    8b   381   

May be worth looking at probate records for theses two.

Dear Rootschat members,

Due to DNA and massive help from an ancestry expect I have just managed to solve this mystery

My wifeís gran , hid a box of skeletons that all all got released on the revelation she was actually born a Dawson  - Mary Dawson born 1914 in Ashington to a George William Dawson and wife Hannah Fenwick.

She had married Boardman , then ran away from her family , to marry for a second time saying her madden name was Mary Boardman with DOB 7 years younger than she actually was.

No wonder I could not find her or trace the family. All this time I was looking for a Boardman when it should have been a Dawson.

The man in regalia is her uncle who married her fatherís sister, a man called John Bonnard 1977-1961 and the regalia was due to a position held as former president of Lancashire and Cheshire council of the national federation of Boot Trades Associates.

She must have used this picture to fabricate a story and escape to her new life.

Fascinating stuff after about a 7 year hunt for the truth.

Thanks for your kind help

Steve
