    EDIT - but no, she was Annie Hodgson, not Ellen Matilda.
    Ah, boo, didn't have time to follow through!

    I can't find a Ellen Matilda Langridge in Eastbourne, was wondering if her first name was correct. Although in census and baptism as Ellen

    I can find an Edith Mary Weller and an Emily.

    family seem to be missing everywhere!

    There is a marriage at Pitsmoor, Sheffield 12 Dec 1916

    no idea why I am still up....there are a lot of beavers in Yorkshire, so maybe completely wrong anyway!

    I wonder if they never married, but and then did wonder if maybe he wasn't even a Beaver
