Ann Milton was born in 1898 in Blackburn, Lancashire, and was the daughter of William Milton and Elizabeth (nee Higginson). In 1919 she married George Richard Cheddy, in Oswaldtwistle. As far as I can discover, they had no children. In 1923 George Cheddy went to Canada. Between 1928 and 1934 several children were born in the Fylde District registered both as Cheddy MMN Milton and as Wilkinson MMN Milton. In later life they were all known as Wilkinson. (I know that all of those children are now deceased, but not giving full details as a younger sibling may be still living.) An electoral register for 1931 lists 'Anne' Cheddy living with John Wilkinson in Marton, Blackpool. Ann Cheddy AKA Wilkinson nee Milton died in Blackpool in 1945. Her death registration is indexed under all three surnames. I am unable to find Ann, nor any of her children, in the 1939 Register. I can't find John Wilkinson either, but that is probably because there are so very many people with that name and I have no idea of his birth date. I have looked for them at the address given in 1931, but they are not there. I haven't so far ordered her death cert, nor the birth certs for any of her children, because my main interest is in her partner John Wilkinson. I expect they couldn't marry as she was unable to divorce her first husband. I was hoping that the 1939 register might give me John's birth date and occupation. Failing that, I hoped to at least confirm my understanding of her own birth date and the number of her children. I know that John could have been in the forces and the children evacuated, but nonetheless Ann must still be there, somewhere?
