1891 Mildred Roberts, daughter of William Roberts a market gardener, is living at Hartlebury, Droitwich, Worcestershire with her parents, sister Winifred and younger brothers. Winifred and Mildred are domestic servants.

June Q 1900 Droitwich reg dist so I'm guessing in Hartlebury Mildred marries Frederick William Brantom from the Beds/Bucks border area.

They go on to have two daughters who are photographed wearing "Votes for women" banners, and a son, and run a prosperous decorating and plumbing business for many years in Fenny Stratford (now part of Milton Kynes).

If anyone can please check the marriage for me I'd be very grateful to know what it says about Mildred, Frederick, their fathers and the witnesses as I'm trying to find out more about Mildred's background and how she gets involved in the suffrage movement.

Thanks very much for any help.

Haven't got the marriage but in 1901 she and her husband are living with his father James 63 who is a widower.  Occupation looks like hardware dealer.

Thanks, I have her in 1901, 1911, 1939, on some electoral registers.

She and her husband go on to run a successful small business in Fenny Stratford and I'm trying to ascertain what might have drawn her to the suffrage movement.
