Hi again Lee,

Using FreeBMD I find the following births, the only ones on that whole website to Williams/Woollen. Am I correct in assuming they could all be the same family, hopefully your Grandmother's, it looks possible ?

I've searched this FoD site's PRs and cannot seem to find any of the above people. Similar searching of GlosBMD only gives these Marriages which seem likely to be correct given the name & initials.
Please, do they know or think if they're correct ?

Marriage Details
Groom Surname Groom Forename Bride Surname Bride Forename District Parish Building Year Register Entry

From GlosBMD the only Williams/Woollen marriage I can find is this one, which seems a reasonable fit, is this your great grandparents' Marriage ?

Marriage Details
Groom Surname Groom Forename Bride Surname Bride Forename District Parish Building Year Register Entry
WILLIAMS Oswald WOOLLEN Lillian Florence Gloucester Gloucester Register Office 1918 29 200

From which GlosBMD gives the following Births

Child Surname Child Forename Father Surname Mother Surname Mother's Former Name Year District Office Register Entry
WILLIAMS Oswald WILLIAMS WILLIAMS ELLIOTT 1895 Forest of Dean Westbury on Severn, East Dean 2 494

Child Surname Child Forename Father Surname Mother Surname Mother's Former Name Year District Office Register Entry
WOOLLEN Lilian Florence WOOLLEN WOOLLEN HAMBLIN 1899 Gloucester Gloucester, St John the Baptist 29 377

Again searching the FoD PRs gives these Burials which seem to fit perfectly;

As I'm sure you realise my purpose for this search is to try and place the family geographically over time, in case there are clues as to where Catherine may be buried. I suspect you may have done the same. Please can you advise whether we're on the right tracks with this, thankyou.
