It looks as if they both married and had children - Violet to a Frederick Spencer and Claude to an Annie Conabeer.

There's an Edward Vile with mmn Yeandle. As he doesn't appear anywhere on the 1911 census and dies in 1939, he seems a strong possibility.
And a Frederick William b and d in 1898.
There are others with what appear to be a variation of Yeandle who I thought were maybes but it appears they're not.
Henry had at least 2 sons and a daughter with Helena.
Baptism records give 6 children born with parents Frank and Elizabeth. Frederick William 1898 (died aged 2 days), Arthur 1899 (died aged 11 days), Redvers 1900, John Henry 1905, then Claude and Lily. Not sure about John as there is a burial aged 4 months but in a different church from the others baptised in hospital.

So not Edward unless he was missed for some reason.

There's a death registration for a John Henry Vile in Langport, Jun qtr 1905.

Sorry, didn't mean you missed him, meant if he wasn't baptised or recorded wrongly.

I was having conversation with my aunt earlier on the phone trying to get her to remember anything else nan said to her years ago and nan mentioned that her her mom elizabeth gave birth to children who died something about not born without.. sorry aunts words 'arsehole' my aunt never mentioned it to me because she thought nan didnt know what she was going about or that it couldnt possibly be true but now it looks like it maybe true! not sure about the why they died part though :rolleyes:

They are on the Somerset baptism records on Ancestry. The babies would have died because of a lack of medical knowledge n the 1890s and 1900s.

Bingo !! - Taunton Courier and Western Advertiser reported case of Neglect. The Mother was Elizabeth while Frank was working in London. I have attached the whole article. She was sentenced to 3 months hard labour. The article also mentions Henry.

absolutely janice...i would imagine that elizabeth was greatly affected and i am hoping that eventually the children were rescued from the workhouse very quickly

Morning Lyn- The article was January 1914 and I think it was later in the year when the two youngest Claude and Violet were baptised with an address of "children's home ". Then Frank was killed in action in 1917 so goodness only knows where the children went. According to MWS they stayed in Somerset.
