Winifred Emma Knell
« on: Tuesday 28 September 21 17:00 BST (UK) »
Winifred Emma Knell was born on the 09.08.1895 in Birchington, Kent, England I have her parent's etc. where she is on the 1901 and 1911, its after 1939 I loose her.

I have her on the 1939 living in Finchley with Mary Ann Kerridge.

Winifred's surname is crossed out and Pollard written instead.
I have always understood this to be the later married name, despite every which way I have not found any marriage between Pollard and Knell.

I need another pair of eyes please. Looking for her marriage ,possible children and date of death.

Thank you for taking the time.

Probate will mean that she left a will.  You may like to consider obtaining this to see what it says.  A will costs 1.50.

The date of probate will be 17 February 1984 and the date of death as shown, 21 October 1983.  Fill in the names and the Registry will be Oxford, and the Folio no. is the long one after the amount of 40000.

If you haven't  ordered a will before you will need to register.  You may be already familiar with ordering wills but in case not, the above should help you.  :D

I wonder if she met up with a man who wasn't free to marry her but she took his name.

This theory needs more research

What if she married twice?
