Thank you all for the replies, very much appreciated.  Am I allowed to put a birth certificate on here? After a recent death in the family I found out a little more as I thought .I found a death penny with the name of Albert Hodgkin's and searched to his parents George Hodgkin's 1864  death September 1908 Burton age 45  and Hannah Hodgkin's 1863 Gormal Worcestershire  found no death. Mary Hodgkin's Gormal Worcestershire .The address 43 Kings Edmond street ?. Elizabeth. Mary. John. George .Alice M ? apparently brothers and sisters.....YES was a bigamist with this family as was a paper cutting. Albert Hodgkin's killed in action Saturday 18 Oct 1918 private 29925 MIKRA British cemetery .Worcestershire Reg was the death penny .  This has been  ongoing for a few years .Thank you for time x

No, you can only transcribe it.   You can post part of it if there is something you cannot read

I've been following this and doing some research and it's confusing to say the least.

1. Randolph Parsons seems to have spent all his life in Birmingham - in 1939 he's still shown as married (and there's not been another marriage for him) so no divorce I would say.

2. You say your fathers' sister was Alice Maude born 23/1/1922 Droitwich - this birth is in the name of Parsons, mothers maiden name Parsons suggesting an illegitimate birth to a single lady named Parsons.  You go on to say on your other thread that Alice married as Alice Gough to John Randell in 1937 BUT this can't be right, surely, as she would only have been 15!!

3. Your fathers birth is registered as Parsons, showing mmn as Taylor (and you say her name is given as Mary) but with no fathers name.   This itself would thus indicate that a Mary Taylor had married a Parsons and although still married her husband wasn't the father of her child (her legal surname would still have been Parsons hence child being registered as Parsons).

As was asked earlier how did you make a 'link' that Mary Parsons, nee Taylor was actually Mary Parsons, nee Hodgkins, wife of Randolph??

Where was Mary in 1939?     When/where and under what name did she die?

Do you mean 1931?  I see a marriage registration Mar qtr 1931 Worcester with Arthur Taylor and Mary Parsons on the page.

What's the relevance of this couple to Albert?  The Mary who married in 1931 was (you say) 47 so would have been about 42 when Albert was born in 1926.  And supposedly born a Taylor - and then going on to marry a Taylor in 1931?  I don't understand at the moment.

Having read both threads and looked at the tree on Ancestry - I cannot see any connection between Randolph Churchill Parsons/Mary Hodgkins and your fathers family - so what am I missing?

I think Mary Parsons nee Hodgkins may have died in 1936 which may or may not account for Randolph living with his daughter in 1939.

The tree I mentioned shows daughter Elizabeth Gough nee Parsons died 1991.  I would recommend you contact the tree owner to see if any information has been passed down within the family about Mary & Randolph

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??

Where did you 'find' the marriage certificate you refer to between Arthur Taylor and Mary Parsons (which appears to be 1931 and not 1937)?   From what you say all you have is that Mary Parsons was 47, and a widow and as rest of certificate 'missing' you can have no idea what her maiden name was??

This is all bizarre - not sure if you have just 'found' things that seem to 'fit'!
