CONFIRMED: Alice Evangeline (Craxford) Williams, widow, married Charles William Burrows (widower and railway goods porter) at Islington Register Office on December 26th 1914.

There is one possible sighting of Alice E Burrows after Charles died in a marriage to James Moore in the Bermondsey District in the summer of 1936. There is then (again a widow) Alice Moore born in 1866 (same year as Alice E Craxford), an office cleaner, living in Crosby Row, Bermondsey. I haven't seen a death for a James Moore to match though.

Leicester / Northampton: Craxford,  Claypole, Pridmore, Pollard, Tansley, Crane, Tilley
Derby: Naylor, Ball, Haywood
Buckinghamshire: Cook
London: Craxford, Lane Crauford
Tyneside: Nessworthy, Simpson
