In my partner's Tree I have William John Percival Ashcroft BIRTH 9 FEB 1834,Tower Hamlets, Stepney, London, England DEATH 18 MAY 1882, Leyton, Greater London/Essex, England from burial record in FamilySearch - no death in BMD or GRO that I can find. He was married to Sarah Frances Jarrett (FANNY) 6 Oct 1857 at St Dunstan and All Saints Church, Stepney, London, England. Four children resulted, two boys who died young and 2 girls who survived, Catherine Alice/KATE and Florence. He seemed to disappear before the 1881 Census as Fanny is claiming to be Mrs Harry Sloane at that time. She went ahead and married Harry on 26 Aug 1883 at Church of St James the Great, Bethnal Green, London, England; BMD V1c p402. What happened to WJP Ashcroft? I was alerted to the fact that several Ashcrofts were executed for murder in Lancaster around this time and wondered if he was part of that family. However I can't find a link- maybe it's in a newspaper? I am assuming the FamilySeaarch burial record is correct (familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QL25-MLGN) as it has his full name but how did that come about without an official Death record? Puzzled in Adelaide.
