Thanks very much for that, Mowsehouse..
I'm completely new to this area of family research, can you tell me what Yad Vashem is exactly?
And now it's pretty certain that we have identified the individual I was seeking, Daisypetal, I've now gone back and had a proper, thorough read of those links you so kindly put on this thread earlier, especially about that Jewish internment camp at Drancy.  Very sobering stuff indeed.
Jacques seems to have been a Rumanian Jew, and the various forced migrations of his people is extremely interesting too.  I think also that the references on Ancestry to passenger lists to  the U.S. probably reference him as well, but I don't pay enough in my subscription to view the original images, apparently!

It is a database recording the names of victims of the holocaust, so they will be remembered for generations to come.

Thanks very much for that, Mowsehowse,
And there's yet another puzzling little piece that I've discovered in this family story of mistruths.
Jacques F gives his residence at the time of his marriage on 14th June 1902 as the Champion Hotel in Aldersgate.  I've just learned by googling that this hotel was demolished in 1901, though one of its mirrors was recently discovered in a Coventry hotel and auctioned off in 2017.  I suppose you can't always believe what you read on the internet, though.
I'm wondering also how I'll ever track down a death or burial entry for Agnes Florence FERMO somewhere in the world, not in the U.K, but possibly Europe, a little while after 1902...

Keith,

In Welsh Newspapers Online there is an advertisement, from the Cymro a'r Celt Llundain newspaper issue of 26th March 1910, for a Grand Smoking Concert to be held on 7th April at the Champion Hotel in Aldersgate.

However, from the same paper on 2nd April, there is a "Notes & News" item which reports that "The Champion Hotel, at Aldersgate Street, having closed its doors, the smoking concert........has had to be transferred to the Horseshoe Hotel"

Very well spotted, Willyam!
I'm surprised that people hadn't noticed that the Champion had closed or even been demolished.  We have a pub here in Cambridge called The Champion Of The Thames, which is always referred to as The Champ.  I bet the place in Aldersgate Street was referred to as such by the locals, who presumably transferred themselves to a hostel nearby, perhaps The Horseshoe Hotel.
Many thanks for that,
Keith
And I wonder what exactly a Grand Smoking Concert was - wreaths of choking cigarette and cigar smoke no doubt, and some kind of performance(s), just distinguishable, going on...
How times have changed, the other day I walked to a Norwich City football game.  I remember last attending fifty years ago, with the then all pervading smell of cigarette smoke hanging heavily over and around the crowd.  Not any more.

You might start with "Find a Grave", and "Familysearch".... fingers crossed.

Keith,

My reading of the newspaper items was that the Champion Hotel had only just closed between the 26th of March and the 2nd of April in 1910.

Willyam,
So maybe it was still open as a hotel for paying guests in 1902, and the reports of it closing and being demolished in 1901 were much exaggerated, or just plain inaccurate...

I'd say that 1901 is a typo for 1910 - what used to be called a 'clerical error'.  Years ago I worked alongside someone who switched numbers all the time and couldn't understand why his totals were wrong ::)
