THOROGOOD - Braintree & Hackey, London

#1
My grandfather Frederick Walter Thorogood immigrated to Australia in 1913, he enlisted in 1914 to serve in WWI - was at the landing at Gallipoli - wounded and returned to Australia 2.11.15. I have his service records.
My great grandfather and great grandmother were Alfred and Augusta Thorogood (nee Woollard) from Braintree, Essex.
Their children were: Leonard - born 1884, May - born 1886, George - born 1888, Frederick (my grandfather) - born 1893, Horace - born 1895/96? I believe there was another sister called Ann/Anne/Annie?
My father, who is now in his mid 80's met Charles (CF) Thorogood, Doris Thorogood, Horace and Hilda Thorogood (nee Sheldrick), Len and Connie Thorogood in 1949 (cousins and uncles/aunts).
Most of my line of Thorogoods come from Braintree, Essex and Hackeny, London. Doris was living at Clacton-on-Sea (have found a death of a Doris May - Birth 8.4.1899 - Death Nov 1990, who died at the age of 91 at Ipswich, Suffolk (which is not far from Clacton-on-Sea).
I have a marriage of George Thorogood (Fred's brother) - He married an Ethel E Wright at Braintree in 1921 - Age 33. Possible children: Betty, Donald, George and Raymond??
Horace (Bill??) Thorogood married Hilda Sheldrick in 1924 - Age 29. Died in 1967 Essex. They apparently had no children.
I can't find a marriage yet of Leonard Thorogood to Connie (presume Constance). They apparently moved to London and had had 3 children (2 girls/1 boy) in 1949. I have a death of a Leonard C in 1940, age 56 at Hackney, London, (the dates tie in exactly).
Have found a marriage in 1905 of May Augusta Thorogood, age 20, in Braintee, Essex. Can't find her in the 1911 Census!
As I will be coming to England this year, I was wondering if anyone can give me information of burials etc and also where some of the above siblings/relatives are today?
Thank you.
Much appreciated!
Kind regards, Marilyn:)

Hi there
I know people have said if the info is available on the net it's okies to post.
I still have a problem about listing info for people who may still be alive.
That's just me!
You never said who May Augusta married. You can't find her in 1911 census.

Good luck with your search

Hi Marilyn
marriage Leonard W A Thorogood to Constance G Pace - Sept Qtr 1935 Lambeth ref 1d 930
children
Diana G V J/S 1941 Lambeth ref 1d 197
Pamela J/M 1944 Lambeth ref 1d 240
Victor C A/J 1945 ref 1d 170

death Leonard William A Thorogood 1969 Lambeth ref 5d 413 (born 27 Aug 1908)

EDIT Having now looked at the census returns for Leonard, I have come to the conclusion this post is incorrect. What a coincidence there are 2 girls and 1 boy
