Hi

My great, great grandfather was James Taylor born Canewdon, Essex, lived much of his life in Great Stambridge. He is on the 1911 census with wife Gertrude and co at 4 Church Cottages, Great Stambridge. He was aged 53 and a farm horseman.

There were 3 possible James Taylor deaths in Rochford district, one in 1917 aged 59, one in 1926 aged 69 and one in 1937 aged 81. I took a gamble and sent off for the 1917 cert. It said James Taylor, died 31st March 1917 aged 59 of Church Cottages, Great Stambridge and G Taylor, wife was the informant. He died of pleurisy and pneumonia. The gamble paid off. I obtained the right certificate.
