    Marie P...'- [Maria] b 26 Sep. 1864 married living alone 14 Caldervale Rd Wandsworth. top of page. This birth date is that of my 2nd cousin x 2 removed.
    Coleman Alfred 26 Jul 1913 also at 14 Caldervale Rd.
    Previous page Albert & Elsie Wilkinson same address in Ancestry Electoral registers they are listed as Albert & May.
    Ancestry registers have Marie P...' at different address with her son b.1904 at 207 Springbank Rd. Lewisham. S.E. 13 1937/8 different addresses again.

    1939 Register has her son Leonard at Baring rd School AFS- Lewisham.

    Can anyone suggest why the difference in 1939 address for Marie? 1945 they are at Benares rd Woolwich.

    She is part of the household of Albert and Elsie, as indicated by the number 4 in the "Sub No" column. However, Alfred COLEMAN on the line below, has the number 1, even though he is at the same address, indicating that he is a separate household.

    She was probably just living with Albert and Elsie at the time the Register was taken.:)

    Thank you Jan, quite probably the correct way of it. Yearly electoral registers less likely to be correct I think as they don't keep up with people moving about. A bit cold over this way not sure if I'm functioning properly.;)

    They are also based upon the information that was correct the previous year. Lots of movement before going into print. ;)

    Keep warm. :)
