Ward / Dale Doris

RobertS

master brummie
Hello folks

Looking for any reference to a 'Doris Ward Dale' or 'Doris Ward' or even 'Doris Dale' and/or her family.We know she was in 26 Kensington Street B19 in the April May and June of 1940.

We don't know if she was a boarder, living alone or with her family or if she was local although we are assuming she was.

Many Thanks

She was living at 26 Kensington Street in 1911 aged 7.
Her parents and elder siblings lived at 15 court 4 Guildford Street in 1891 and the same address in 1901 (mistranscribed as Wright)

Absolutely smashing Ladylinda! I'm sure this will help.

Still don't know how you have done it, spent all afternoon chipping away with no result and thought posting was a very slim chance.

Thanks and thanks again

Re: Doris Ward Dale

Once again many thanks Ladylinda.

I'm Ok now. The first step was the one I couldn't crack and the 1911 fills in a gap now I'm off filling in all the details.

You wouldn't believe how grateful I am.

Re: Doris Ward Dale

Hello again, I forgot to ask:

Is there any clue as to Doris or her husband after 1939/40?

Feel very cheeky after all the help, thanks again

Re: Doris Ward Dale

Have looked at Electoral Rolls after 1939 for Birmingham,but they don't appear on them,so they may have moved from Brum?

my 3 great aunts lived at 229 Church Hill Road, it was known also as Westminster Villa. My mother was born in Westminster Road no 59. All died many years ago but the houses are both still there.

Thank for the post Solihull54. Another confirmation. 10 years after getting stuck ancestor tracing. Amazing.
