Hi

Looking for the birth reg. of Hilda.

This is likely to be her in 1911
Civil Parish: Sculcoates
County: Yorkshire-East Riding
Street address: 7 Janes Terrace St Mack Street Hull
RD: Sculcoates
RD No: 521
Sub-RD: Southcoates
ED: 4; Piece: 28581

Benjamin James Cranwell 37 [Away at sea]
Mary Cranwell 34
Hilda Wood 10
Mary Aggies Wood 5
Lizzie Cranwell 3
Benjamin Cranwell 8/12
All b. Hull - See Edit below re. Benjamin
The image says these parents were mar. 2y which is about right..

Marriages Q4 1908
CRANWELL Benjamin James
HUTCHINSON Edward
JEWISON Mary
WILLIAMS Elsie
Sculcoates
9d 471

Her sister, Mary Agnes' birth can be found in 1906.

This is Hilda's mar.

Marriages Q4 1920
Hunt John W [Wood]
Runton Frank P Taylor
Taylor Ivy Runton
Wood Hilda [Hunt]
Hull
9d 734

Many thanks
Geoff

Edit:
It looks as though Benjamin was b. London. His entry on the image was crossed out and just noticed it.

Births Q4 1875
CRANWELL Benjamin

Geoff

Edit:
It now looks like the 1873 birth is the correct one.

Thanks, Dave.

I had seen that 1901 census when looking at Mary Jewison but more or less discounted it because I couldn't see how 'Wood' fitted in :rolleyes:

On reflection, there is a lot there that would work and they don't look to be afraid to shuffle names.

This is looking increasingly likely now, Dave [or something similar].

I decided to send for the cert. and no father given. Mother = Mary Jewison... b. 20 Oct 1900, reg. 3 Dec 1900.

Interesting she was a 'Jewison' in 1900 and 1901 and a 'Wood' in 1911 :rolleyes:
