    Well I now know why we couldn't find Agnes with her husband John in 1939. John dad died prior to 1930. This was when their daughter Agnes got married. So maybe Agnes Snr was with one of her married children.

    Did Agnes have a daughter called Maud?

    The 1939 has an Agnes B LORYDON (sic) born 2nd February 1872 (which fits with a March Q registration) living with a Horace and Maud TANKS (sic). If you check marriages, Horace TONKS wed Maud LONGDON in Burton district in 1935.

    Looking at the original entry, Agnes' surname is difficult to read as a redacted entry is obliterating some of it.

    Ref: RG101/5879A/003/43

    They are in Derby - not a million miles from Staffordshire. ;)

    Could this be her?

    I've been seeing Maud a lot too, did wonder if one of the girls tried it on for a time. Looked for o'seas travel for Agnes -wasn't apparent .
    I have found several which match their Baptism dates, not birth dates. Others not too sure. I guess they haven't had to obtain a birth cert. for any reason?

    I have a couple of 'losts' in the 39 register. The wives are at home but the husbands are not listed. I know my grandfather was in the Navy during the war and my husbands grandfather, allegedly was a policeman (definitely in 1941 but possibly earlier).

    Would their being missing from the register be something to do with active service or having been called up?

    My Gramps was Maurice Mellett b.1910. My grandmother Beatrice Emily Mellett is living in Newquay with her parents Arthur and Beatrice Rowe.

    Alan's grandfather is Walter Hawes (b.1902/3). His wife Ivy Edna May Hawes is living with her parents Hedley & Alice Cattermole in Depwade, Norfolk.

    Maurice and Walter not listed anywhere that I can find - any ideas welcome

    think I need to see if I can get hold of service records, that will show me exactly when they joined up and what they were actually doing - I will track down these elusive ancestors

    I was going to suggest Electoral Registers- as they may have been listed on a separate page- but I see for Norfolk the only go to 1915. :(

    There is one in Hayes and Harlington (just down the road from me:)) on the
    1939 reg. a transport driver born 2/11/1910 - Listed as married
    I checked FreeBMD and could not see another MM born 1908-12, so it could be your Gramps

    Edit - if he is yours then the address - The Crescent WEL (=West End Lane)

    Back to Agnes Longden - this one keeps appearing for me:sceptical:
    Adela Longden 13/2/1871 a widow living in Sheffield - I cannot find a birth for an Adela anywhere so could this be Agnes?
    I am not convinced though
