I have emailed the auction house and, as I expected, they will not release any details. Thats standard practice but it was a family member who sold the MBE.

I also tried to find a death record. Of course, she could have married and be there under a different name but I have a feeling she didn't. She left England in 1919 for Hong Kong and perhaps never returned but that means the bit about Guys Hospital in the late 1920s is also wrong........
I lived in Ardwick, Manchester in the early 1960s as a small child and much travelling of the world has now led me to want to know more about my roots. Carter, Beckwith, Connolly, Heron and Kelly are all names that form part of my family tree.

Thanks,

That's my next move. I understand that there are RCN records as well. Might answer the question about where she was in the 1920s.

Still not sure about the MBE. I have researched quite a few honours winners and always found the official entry. If not the London Gazette, then some other notice.
