This is interesting

ELLEN MAUD ARY   SAMUEL   19130425

Ellen Maud (Mary?) Samuel born 25 April 1913

https://www.identitynumber.org/death-records.php

Was their a sister too, maybe died young? Not sure, name is a co-incidence

How much do you really know about your fathers family?

Thomas Monteith Samuel is easy to trace on 1891/1901 on census in Scotland, 1911 in London in the city as a fireman.

He certainly liked to move around, Alexander Thomas birth registered dec qtr 1911 Hackney, then baptised as Thomas Alexander Samuel born 28/9/1911 bapt 19/11/1911 Jesus Chapel Enfield, but gives his address as 25 High Street Peckham.

Can trace Thomas mother Mary (nee Monteith) Samuel through Scottish census, except 1881 where a Mary Gordon pops up matching ?
