Hi again,
I certainly don't know more than you do, I just methodically work the available free websites(FreeBMD, GlosBMD and of course this FoD one), then perhaps Family Search/LDS, and see what turns up. Failing that I use Ancestry but only as a last resort and am not a subscriber.

Despite searching the above sites I'm not getting much luck so far despite trying both spellings, I do see Augusta was clearly a very popular Stevens/Stephens name !

As far as your Augusta goes I can only find what you know, which handily confirms she had no middle names;

So far I cannot find any relevant Burials for Augusta Hayward, probably cos like a twit I started searching under the Stevens surname, duh !
The best source for Death Records in our area is FreeBMD, at least up until the 1960s or so - after that it's Ancestry Death Index etc.

I see Paul has found what looks very much like her Death Record while I've been floundering elsewehere, thanks good sir !

Out of curiosity Alby, have you found Richard in the 1891 Census ?. Does this, or any other, suggest he's widowed. This might give further credence.

------------

Searching Richard on GlosBMD gives this possible marriage to Charlotte, and in about the right timeframe too wrt Augusta's passing a few years prior;

Marriage Details
Groom Surname Groom Forename Bride Surname Bride Forename District Parish Building Year Register Entry
HAYWARD Richard GRIFFIN Charlotte Gloucester Gloucester St Mark 1890 31 No 5 203
HAYWARD Richard CROSS Charlotte Gloucester Gloucester St Mark 1890 31 No 5 203

Looking at GlosBMD there are quite a few Charlotte Cross & Charlotte Griffins in those times, many married more than once, so a tricky line to untangle..
