I'm trying to find a marriage/death/emigration for Frederick Kemp born in Ramsgate, Thanet in 1872 to Tom Kemp and his 2nd wife Emma. FYI it's possible he may have been Frederick William.

I've found him still in Ramsgate in the 1901 census, living with his older half sister Ellen Tuff and still single age 28 and working as a potman/barman (he'd previously been a fishmonger so am thinking this was a step down for him?!). He then seems to disappear and not be on the 1911 census, so am guessing he may have either died or left - or maybe even wedding bells and emigration though I've found no sign of it!

If anyone can shed any light that would be great :)
