Richard Godfrey born 11 December 1910 Prestwich Lancashire

Well-known member
Hello I was wondering if someone could help me with a tricky case.

My ancestor Richard Godfrey born 11th December 1910 to parents Henry William and Jemina Godfrey (Caddick) Born 1888 Manchester. I have found on a 1911 census that he and his mother were in a workhouse in Manchester he was 4 months old. I can't understand why they would be. His father is on a 1911 census with his parents aged 26. His father then served in WW1 for 3 years from 1915.

Richard i believe then moves to America I have a marriage certificate for him in 1938 in Virginia, He is then Naturalized in 1961. On his marriage certificate his parents are noted as Father Col Charles Godfrey and Jemima Caddick. Am i right in thinking his mother re-married and his Charles Godfrey a relation to Richard. The marriage certificate gives no indication on where his parents are living and i'm yet to find this marriage of Charles and Jemima. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
