    Stanley Alexander Carrette was a bit of a lad.
    Born in Hackney in 1901 (I have his parents, siblings etc.)
    In 1920 he joined the RAF, his then occupation was a barman, he was a rigger.
    He was discharged in 1922 because of incontinence.

    On 11/3/1924 he left for Melbourne Australia, leaving behind a pregnant girlfriend, occupation farmer. I know it is the correct man as his address on the manifest is the same as his mother (nok on his RAF enlistment)

    His son Stanley Alexander was registered as Carrette in Sept qtr 1924
    He must have returned because he married his son's mother (Evelyn M Pawsey) in 1925. Son Stanley Alexander was re-registered in 1926
    4 more children were born 1926 - 1932. One died in infancy. I have both of the sons on the 1939 register, but not the daughters, although I do have their marriages post-war.

    I have Evelyn in 1939 (with one redacted entry) listed as married, in Barking Essex and her death in 1968 in Stepney,

    Can anyone help find out what happened to Stanley Alexander b1901?

    :( oh. I did think it unlikely if wife was still alive. I cannot find a death on Ancestry, I wonder if he went o'seas again? probably unlikey if he still had problems with continence.

    Probably nothing.......but on 2 November 1953 arriving from England to New York on the Queen Mary, with tourist visas, was a Stanley CARRETTA. He was born in England but was a US citizen. No age on manifest. With him is a John CARRETTA and a Violet Carretta. Both John and Violet were born in Britain.
    Looking for a Stanley CARRETTA on Freebdm brings up nothing but there is a John in 1922 mother Wright.
    Was Stanley's surname pronounced Carrett(a)?

    I think it might be Boone Terrace. From some searching Boone Terrace was built after the war for returned servicemen and those that worked in the aluminium smelter.

    Find a Grave has Gladys Eva Carrette buried Loughton Cemetery Epping Forrest District. Death/Burial 16 october 2015.
    I'm assuming that Stanley is the son of Walter Richard Carrette who is buried Forest Hill Road Bedford died 30th January 1952 and was a police officer with the Metropolitan Police as noted on the 1911 census with Stanley as son.

    Another marriage took place at Redbridge December 1965. It couldn't be Stanley Jnr as Gladys didnt die until 2015. Unless they divorced.

    A sighting of Stanley in 1934 in the Electoral Register at 4 Chalgrove Road, Hackney, which houses the following people:

    Carrette, Evelyn Mabel
    Carrette, Stanley Alexander
    Pawsey, Alfred Thomas
    Pawsey, Coral Vera
    Pawsey, Martha Hannah
    Pawsey, Miriam Blanche
    Pawsey, Olive Norah

    However, the Electoral Register for the following year has a Stanley CARRETTE living at 23 & 25 Well Street, Hackney.

    Rummaging on the interwebby indicates that this address was a hostel/hotel and looking at the list of people registered as living there, they are all men.

    Thanks AM:)

    You are right that Stanley Alexander was one of the sons of Walter Richard.
    Walter married my grandfather's sister, so the children are my dad's cousins, but whether he ever knew them I have no idea. Granddad was much older than Nan, so these cousins are 10-15 years older than dad.
    I have no idea how they pronounced their name, I assumed ca-ret (as opposed to carrot, but it could have been), they were brought up in the East End, so I cannot imagine they would have sounded the last 'e' as 'a'.
    I do try not to delve into the marriages etc of, in this case dad's cousins children, as they are potentially living, so although I have seen 1965 marriage, I have not looked at it any further.

    Coral Vera was born in 1911 mmn Taylor so looks like a sister to Evelyn.

    Thanks Jan,

    So in 1934 Stanley and Evelyn were with the Pawsey's - I haven't really looked at them, but will check if they are Evelyn's parents or siblings, or both - it is both.

    It is looking like Stanley and Evelyn did part, if he was in a hostel, or they hit upon very hard times, but it still doesn't explain why I cannot find a death, unless he did go abroad alone. They had no more children after 1932, which perhaps indicates they parted.

    I wonder if this is your Stanley - after all Forest Gate is very East End...... :D
    Daily Mirror 23rd February 1967
    Two battered Georgian trunks have been sent to Buckingham Palace - at the request of the Queen. The trunks contain 18th-century documents, some written in Latin, relating to the Queen's great-grandfather, the 11th Earl of Strathmore. The trunks were found when a building in Forest Gate, East London, was knocked down. But how they got into the building nobody knows. A Forest Gate antique dealer, Mr Stanley Carrette, bought the trunks for £2. Then he wrote to the Queen. He received a letter in reply from Mr Stanley Williams, who is in charge of interior furniture and furnishings at Buckingham Palace. Mr Williams asked that the trunks be sent to the Palace. And yesterday, Mr Carrette heard that the Queen wants to keep them.

    Oooh, that sounds like one of them Ann,
    It has to be father, or son.
    I wonder if the palace paid him the £2 for them:D
