I was told Jessie mother was margarat . She was apparently a bit of a character - and was with lots of men ! My father remembered being taken out be her on coach trips so she could go out with different men!

Goodness!
she might be Emma Margaret

I am thinking she may have been widowed by 1939

Added- well that Emma is Emma Martha.

I'm puzzled by the Margaret.

I'm disobeying my own advice. I should be waiting until you have some more certificates.

OK. 

1. we have Kenneth JP saying his mother died in Australia along with Charles BARTON
i see no evidence for travel nor for deaths in Geelong can any other Rootschatters?

2. Alfred Edward died Woolwich 1962, burial gives Jessie L LEWIS. At the same address. So alive and not dead in Australia.

3. Electoral rolls so far 1961 45 Briset Rd Woolwich. is this the address on the burial information?
1945 7A Plumstead High Street Woolwich
1947 7A Plumstead High Street, Woolwich Alfred E, Jessie L and June F Lewis
1948, 84 St Mary Street Woolwich. Alfred E, Jessie L  and June F. Lewis.   Who was June?*
1950 ditto with June and also Herbert and Elsie Steggall.
1952 itís just Alfred and Jessie at 45 Briset Road
1953 ditto
1957 ditto
1958 ditto
1961 Ditto with Kenneth J. (Just found this one)
1962 Jessie  Briset Road and Kenneth J
1963 Jessie, Briset Road. And Kenneth J
1964 Jessie Briset Road, Kenneth J

I would suggest your father was probably at his fatherís funeral. I wonder if there is a newspaper notice for Alfreds death . Email to Woolwich public library??

4. Since we are now to 1964 I am wondering if that second marriage others have for Jessie in 1962 is correct.

* that Lewis tree on Ancestry which has a lot of evidence attached does not have a June F Lewis in it

Wow this is all going against what I was ever told ! It was a Charles Bolton my dad said basically bought him up and his dad Alfred had nothing to do with him at all .
My father told me that his mum Jessie worked in the arsenal &Woolwich arms factory . And he was taken to Australia in the 1940ís -1950ís by Jessie and Charles Bolton . Where they both passed away - I am guessing in the 60ís , and then my dad told me he returned to the uk shortly after ?

Iím still very very suspicious about that 1965 marriage of a Kenneth J P Lewis to Barbara Nicholas.

I think you should try for a newspaper death notice for Alfred.
Added.  And I think the one true thing is probably that Jessie worked in the Arms factory.
