Re: Frederick Asken

Thanks Wilma. I have Frederick and Bridget's marriage entry in 1862. But no sign of him in 1861 or before. I also have his mother Ann's death entry in 1872 but no sign of her in 1871 or before. So frustrating. I think I'm just going to stop at Frederick who I have lots of info on. Thanks again, Anne...

Re: Frederick Asken

Thank you both for looking Wilma and Andrew. You are both looking at the correct family. Thomas Asken (and variations) born 1872 died in 1876 by the looks of it. I can see it indexed but haven't looked at the entry. My Thomas was born in 1890 to the same couple - Frederick Asken and Bridget Hannaway...

Re: Helen Gray 1916

Thanks everybody. Alan, I did look at The Herald but found nothing :roll: and it is the only report to say 3 people were actually charged. What a pity they didn't give the names! Helen had an illegitimate child to a Thomas Erskine, a tube worker in 1912. Allegedly Thomas died in the war and I wonder...

Re: Helen Gray 1916

Hi Andrew,

I wondered the same.

Although the death entry mentions the assault the post mortem doesn't and gives the cause of death as sudden heart failure. I was hoping for the names of the people mentioned in the newspaper.
