Hi Sue,

On FreeBMD, there is a marriage of Rose Elizabeth Webb in Warwick in the June quarter of 1891, vol 6d page 799. The possible spouses are Ernest Edward Hall and James Beilby. There are also five other Rose Elizabeth Webb marriages between 1893 and 1910, in various locations. Additionally, there are dozens of Rose Webb marriages!

So not a very promising start to finding out what happened to Rose!

Maybe a search of the 1901 census, using the criteria "Rose", birth date +/- 2 years, and place of birth Lichfield might reveal something! (Or it might not if the search is taking too long!)

I'll have a try in a mo!

Back again! There are 6 results for born Lichfield and 24 for born Stafford (which is stated as the birthplace by FMP on the 1881 census).

Sorry, not much help!

Must go and pack, now! Going to Oz on Monday!

thanks josie already had tried the 1901 for rose but no good,was hoping to find some christening records for them both but no go for any of the kids apart from ellen who was born here in hartlepool am hoping ellens birth certificate will help me get her mother at least and get me kick started again.am completely at a dead end with this lot. i live 10 mins away from an l.d.s history centre, but its only open a few hours a week so am going to ring them tommorow see if they have anything.nor noah nora? he was 23 in 1901 and listed as a shipyard worker but nothing afterwards and i have spent hours trying every possibility i can think of and nothing,.on a lighter note have a brill time in oz ,but spare a thought for us here freezing in the snow its baltic here, my gardens frozen solid haha suexx
