Florence Strachan, c 1897, Torquay
« on: Thursday 13 December 18 10:24 GMT (UK) »
In 1901, can anybody find Florence Louise Victoria Strachan, born Torquay Q3 1897?

Father appears to be William Strachan, born St Pancras, London c 1850.
Probably a brother Edwin, born 1896, Torquay.

From GRO, mother's maiden name was Woodland. But unable to find a marriage to William

I see that Florence Louisa Victoria Strachan married as Dorothy L Woodland (to Thomas G Biss, Taunton, 1922).  She died as Florence Louise V Strachan b 5 June 1897 in Taunton Deane in 1990.

She may also have had a Woodland daughter in Taunton in 1920, before her marriage.
