Rance and Welch
« on: Sunday 27 October 19 01:19 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to follow the parents of a lady who married a distant relative and not having much success.  I have not purchased any certs yet.
James Charles Welch birth registered Mar 1893 St Saviour. Harriett Louisa Rance birth registered Jun 1898 Camberwell. They married 25 May 1915 St Philip Camberwell. There were two children that I know of - Winnifred May 1915 and Louisa Rose 1916. Then I am stuck.
I wonder if James Charles died because there are two interesting marriages that may pertain to them.
In Sep 1918 Camberwell a Harriett L Welch married Frederick Waller and Mar 1924 Camberwell Harriett L Waller/Welch married George L Green. I tried looking for Harriett L Green in 1939 but did not see here although she may be there.

Any suggestions
