    kind of feel at 21 a bit young to be him, so maybe his father?

              ooh good spot, born in Dec 1903 so maybe his mother remarried, is that what you are thinking, will must be worth getting for £1.50 along with maybe his?

                There doesn't seem to be a birth that matches and a tree has her with some beautiful photo's and she isn't a Roberts!

                Well worth £1.50 I thought until I saw the tree, but maybe lass knows more.

                    Off out now to pick up husband, guess there must be a census with them on.

                      I think that this maybe Gwendoline and Eric John in Leicestershire
                      https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...A_025/36461947

                      although I did find another Gwendoline married

                      and this is the 1911 census:
                      https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...363.1543608453
                      John Davies 32Sarah Jane Davies 31
                      Phylis May Davies 7
                      John Eric Davies 5

                      names a little too common to be sure.

                        Thanks everyone for your contributions.

                        maybe lass knows more

                        Edward and Grace were the only beneficiaries in the will of Rose Lily Green (nee Bryan) -
                        trying to find out if they are related to her although no evidence found yet to prove a connection.

                                    before 1966 as her will states 'widow'

                                    I did wonder if Grace might be Rose and Harry's daughter but have not found any Green-Bryan births between 1915-1930
                                    Also wondered if Grace might have been married to Mr Jones before she married Edwd. S Davies ????

                                      Yep, thinking the same, been trying to look at Bryan, wondered what happened to sister Elizabeth as that would be another combination.

                                      Harry is not at Saffron Hill, have you covered Belgrave and Gilroes already?
