Mary Hodgkins was born around 1884 according to the 1907 marriage cert and as Randolph was still alive in 1939 she could not have been a widow in 1931

Suggest you buy a full copy of the 1931 marriage cert to establish Marys maiden name and her fathers name

Nothing you have told us connects to Randolph Parsons and Mary Hodgkins

Hi I have the marriage certificate and bible from my dad's house, the date is hard to see it looks either 31 or 37 it was a guess. Mary must have died in Leicester in the 60s as we moved in 68  I went to see her before she died. Her maiden name was Hodgkins .I'm going to send off for her Marriage  certificate .Many thanks again for your time .

Please let us know. I am quite confused as I thought you already have the marriage certificate.

There's no Mrs Parsons with Randolph on the Birmingham electoral registers from Spring 1925 on.
At 14 Court 11 Lower Tower Street
Randolph Parsons and Harriett Windred (sister?)

Edward and Harriett Windred there in 1922.

The only Mary Taylor who died in Leicester between 1960 and 1970 is a Mary born 20/11/1883, died March 1970 - all the other Mary's had second names??

That one could match Mary daughter of George the Glass Cutter
Birth, Dec 1883 Dudley 6c 94
Hodgkins, Mary       
mother Turner

1891, Mary age 7 in Dudley, all born Gornal except father George born Dudley
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:W3XC-ZPZ

The 5 month old Alice M is Alice Maud, Dec 1890, Dudley, mmn Turner

Mary Taylor died at Woodshaw Drive Leicester in the 60's.

Woodshaw Rise?

I found a death penny with the name of Albert Hodgkin's

Albert on CWGC
https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/341073/hodgkins,-albert/

Birth
Sep 1897 Dudley 6c 102
Hodgkins, Albert Edward
mother Turner

1901, no Mary
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XSQ1-1K5

Does lidybut really have a dead mans penny for Albert? That would be pretty interesting evidence.

This could be the Leicester connection
Possible marriage of Mary's sister Alice Maud, born 1890?
Jun 1912 Leicester 7a 501
Hampson, Albert A. - spouse Hodgkins   
Hodgkins, Alice M. - spouse Hampson

I can see an Alice M Hampson in Leicester in the free index to the 1939 Register.
Born 1890 (trying a few birth months, it's October, i.e. she would have been about 5 months old in the 1891 census)

f.m.p have helpfully returned those TNA references in the address bar! It gives us 6005J/006

Now, searching the free index, with ref 6005J/004, there is an Anna Hodgkinson, born 1862
But on ancestry she is Anna Hodgkins!

Anyway,
George Hodgkins married Anna Turner, 1881, Dudley.
Hannah Hodgkins was 28 in 1891, and 38 in 1901, so born around 1862/3

Hannah Hodgkin's 1863 Gormal Worcestershire  found no death.

What about
Dec 1960 Leicester 3a 526
Hodgkins, Hannah   
age 98

Hello again. On the 1891 Censers I found this. George Hodgkins Head 27 1864 Dudley .  Hannah Hodgkins wife 28 1863 Gornal  . Eliza Hodgkins Daughter 8 1883.MARY HODGKINS Daughter 7 1884 Gornal .John Hodgkins son 4 1887 Gornal  l .George Hodgkins son 2 1889  . Alice M Hodgkins Daughter 5 half months 1880 Dudley.....Address at that time was 43 Kings Edmond street ?  ..Going through what you all put this is what's I found. The death could be the one as I thought 1968 ,not far out its a long way in years lol The mother to Mary I was told she had the telegram from the queen for her 100th birthday she lived across the road in woodshaw drive. Just want to say a massive thank you for your help and support x

1929, 1931
15 Elmdale Street, Leicester
Albert Arthur Hampson
Alice Maud Hampson
Hannah Hodgkins

Hannah not listed there in 1930
Cecil Francis Hampson listed 1929, 1930

Heaven knows why f.m.p transcribed Anna as Hodgkinson rather than Hodgkins in 39

Got Albert Edward Taylor in 1959, at 69 Woodshaw Rise (not Drive!), Leicester
Presumably it is his wife listed with him.
