PARKER, Mabel Lily c1898 - 20/3/1966

Can you help me find a mysterious lady?

Mabel Parker left her estate to my great uncle James Reginald EMENEY in her will of 1956. James was the black sheep of the family and was not seen much after he left the navy in 1918. He was said to be fond of the bottle. My father believes he and Mabel lived together as a couple in Ipswich up until her death in 1966.

Did Mabel have any children? What became of Mr Parker? Was Mabel a widow or divorcee?:eek:

Any help with uncovering this particular skeleton in the family closet will be welcome. I have a copy of Mabel's will which includes her address from 1956 to 1966 if someone wants more detailed information.
Wonder if there was a death notice that would shed some light on it.
Im not to sure about UK death certificates but wonder if it would note her status, married, widow or the likes of.
Best that I can find is a marriage :-
1st Quarter 1926 in Ipswich for -
Cecil H Parker to a Mabel L B Juby

Death for Cecil H Parker in 4 quarter 1951 in Ipswich.

No children found.
