Deaths Sep Qtr 1845 BENSLEY William [0] Mitford & Launditch 13 122

If it was not for the baptism I'd say they only named one son William. But if the 1845 death is the one baptised 1845 then I can't find a birth reg for either William with mmn Blomfield/Bloomfield.

The other curious thing is that the son born after is James b. Swaffham on the shipping record which fits this

BENSLEY, - -
GRO Reference: 1849 D Quarter in OF THE SWAFFHAM UNION Volume 13 Page 273


Shipping record says William was born 1852 in Hull.

Death 17863/1924 BENSLEY WILLIAM - WILLIAM - FRANCES - LIVERPOOL

BENSLEY William Death notice 05NOV1924 Death 72 late of Fairfield, formerly of Crookwell SMH 07NOV1924

William sen died in NSW in 1892 as did Frances.

EDIT: I know where they are buried but not the denomination.
