Death Sep 1912 in Middlesbrough, Yorkshire North Riding

Father : Sigbjorn and a farmer
His name does seem to change Sigbjornsen - Knutsen -Knudson. I guess he would have been called Sigbjornsen as was the way then but don't know the reason for Knutsen to Knudson. (Anglicised from the Norwegian Name Knud Sigbjornson possibly )

Best Regards Ron
