Albert Edward Ashcroft was born Walmer, Kent, England; Reg. Eastry V2a p867. Father Robert Ashcroft, mother Sarah Ann Wild. Married Winifred Moore 15 Dec 1888, Collyhurst, Albert Memorial Church, Manchester, England; Children John R b 1889, Albert Edward b 1894; Elizabeth b. 1896; William b. 1902; George b. 1907. Winifred Ashcroft says she is a Widow on 1911 Census ( RD No. 467, ED, institution, or vessel 16 Piece 24269) but I cannot find a Death record for her husband. I believe he may have been a Merchant Seaman as he seems absent at Census times but there are some ships' crew with an Albert Ashcroft between 1888 and 1901. His last child with Winifred was born 1907 so that narrows down the possible DoD. Have tried FreeBMD, GRO, FamilySearch and British deaths abroad and on Ships. Is this another lost Ashcroft or did he do a bunk to the USA?
