Forest miners going to Wigan (Parish Records)

Glad we could help a little Janey, I guessed the email was an oversight.
Also glad you enjoyed your visit to the Forest. Sadly I've not lived there for 30 years, but my mum and one of my sisters is still in Cinderford, despite the town being somewhat "tired" these days compared to it's prosperity in my childhood, the people are still friendly salt-of-the-Earth and I love them. For some reason the Stockwell Green address has stuck in my memory since we went to Cub Scouts there in the early 70s, next to the St Johns vicarage playing field.
This 1883 map shows it was almost detached from modern-day Cinderford, which of course was itself originally centred on Cinderford Bridge hence St John's being the town's first large Church.

I think the GRO have just made an error twixt years & months with Henry. GlosBMD are clear about his birth if not his death, also his parent's marriage. Of course his age may have been recorded incorrectly when registered.

There are a couple of "possibles" for his mother Emily Martin, but I suspect this one;

Cannot easily find the family in the Census before Emily's marriage, this may be why, from GlosBMD;

Beginning to wonder if this is Emily's family now, but cannot seem to find her anywhere with certainty on the 1861 & 1871 Census, so ??
