    You and me both - there are plenty of later ones on-line for other places and some of the nationals, but not for your neck of the woods. I will stick a request in to the BNA to add some more papers for Herefordshire next time they ask me for what I want to see added to the collection.

    Just catching up with this. Ah... not a fireman, a policeman.

    The death record doesn't actually say that the bullet was fired, just that it was 'accidentally received'? * Just read Ann's post above that was posted in a similar vein while I was reading other articles on the Rotherwas factory.

    It would have been a dangerous place to work.

    Sorry @Sandiep that is my fault. He died in 1942, his probate was granted in 1943.

    Ok need help to find a marriage.

    Arthur Sidney Page marred Beatrice Edwards in Battle, Sussex in 1931.

    They can be found on the 1939 register living at:-

    27 Downlands Close , Bexhill M.B., Sussex, England

    Arthur S Page 04 May 1906 Hair Dresser Married
    Beatrice MacDonald (Page) 22 Jun 1904 Unpaid Domestic Duties Married

    As you can see Beatrice now has the name MacDonald by her name.

    The original shows that Page has been crossed out and MacDonald written in and a date of 5-4-44, weather this is the marriage date or when they let the record office know I have no idea.

    This means that she remarried after Arthur's death in December 1842.

    There is a death registered in Knighton in 1971 for a Beatrice MacDonald born 1904.

    Arthur's headstone reads:-

    ARTHUR SIDNEY PAGE Killed on Active Service Nov. 27th 1942 aged 36
    Also BEATRICE his wife died April 22nd 1971 aged 66 years.

    As you can see it doesn't actually say Beatrice's surname.

    I can't find a marriage for her to a MacDonald.

    The only one I can find remotely near that date is on scotlandspeople, but it's not transcribed or scanned and would cost £12 to get a copy

    PAGE, BEATRICE
    MACDONALD, ALEXANDER GEORG
    1944, 685/2 2
    St Andrew (Edinburgh)
