Thomas Henry Challenor married Sep 1899 Coventry 6d 1035. He married either Mary Ann Barnett or Alice Thompson.

Can't see Thomas in 1901 so has possibly left England.

Possible death for William Challenor
Mar 1901 Coventry 6d 362 age 49

Buried 31 March 1901 at London Road Cemetery, Coventry.

I can't see any other birth that would fit.

Something is not right somewhere.

Looks as though Thomas made a trip to England after his wife died.
