Hi all.:)

My Gt. Aunt, Mabel Ives married Fred Bett(s), 28th Sept 1918 @ St Mary's, Princes Risborough, Bucks.

Fred Bett(or Betts) was born c1892 @ Waddesdon, Bucks, but was residing in Princes Risborough in 1911.

Can't seem to pin down a death for Mabel Bett(s) in Buckinghamshire.

There is a possible death for Fred Bett in 1940. Wycombe District.

I checked the 1939 register for Fred Bett, and a preview gives a possible sighting in High Wycombe M.B. Buckinghamshire. There also appears to be a Mabel Hodgson(Betts) at the same premises.:confused:

Mabel Ives(Betts) is the last one to find in this part of my tree.

So is there any chance of a 1939 register look up please for Mabel.

Thanks again folks.


Steve.:)

No date of birth for Mabel, Julie. Just her year 1893, and J/A/S Quarter, and baptism date.

The 1939 register seems strange, with the surname of Mabel Hodgson(Betts), if Fred Betts died in 1940.:confused:

I can only assume it was altered when Mabel remarried in 1956, which must be the case.

2 children, Gladys Bett 1921, and Freda Bett 1928. Not found any more.

Thanks again Julie, another puzzle solved I think.

Steve.

Hi Steve,
have just sent you the 1939 images.

Mabel was born 16 Aug 1893 and a Mabel Hodgson with the same birthday died Wycombe Q4 1972 so I'm sure that will be her.

Thanks Elaine. Just found the Gladys Bett marriage to James E Bowler in 1942, so that also ties in with what was found.:)

Just need to close this off with her sister Freda Bett's marriage.;)
