Sorry to be slow in response, I'm learning to use the site and not up to speed yet.
Your notation looks like it could be right on target. What would be the name of that record group so I could track it myself? I use Ancestry, Family Search and a couple of others, but don't have a lot of experience with available record groups in the UK.
You've been very helpful and I think you've got the right wife for Fred. I wonder if he was still alive, that's awfully young for her to die. There must be a reason for that. He's the one I would have thought might not live a long life due to the results of his war injuries .

OK, I just located your information and source citation on FamilySearch.
I think you are right. Thanks again.

And now I've found the ship's list for their return to their home in Birmingham. It's coming together. Now for his death record.

Although failing to find his death information, one of the best results to come from this part of his search is learning something from the ship's passenger list when Fred, Becky and son Norman sailed back to England in 1920. His occupation was given as "artist", confirming what I'd heard from the family and from two pieces of his work in my possession; one is a watercolor of "Beauchief Abbey", the other a lovely pencil sketch of my grandmother that he did when he was roughly fifteen years old. I've been waiting to see some confirmation of his talent other than "jewellery salesman", "traveller" in records. He seems so much more real now. I appreciate the direction I've gotten here.
