Thanks, didnt realise i hadn't put his birthplace which is lancashire England, and up until he's 15 in the 1911 census we have him in lancashire. But after that we have no idea until 1952 when he marries in lancashire.

Also by the 1911 census walter full name, is walter Crompton Mansfield.
In the 1952 marriage certificate it has him down as divorced to Hannah Hyde Mansfield formerly Wakefield spinster but we are struggling to find this marriage as well.

This is some mixed up family. From this census it would suggest Lucy was married twice, once to someone named Mansfield and Holt is her 1 st marriage surname or her maiden name.

thats great its been the whole problem, very confusing family. as far as we can make out lucy was married 3 times. She married a george crompton in 1910 as well (we presume its the same one) From 1911 onwards we can't find any records until the marriage in 1952. A confusing family from start to present.

Thankyou very much thats a great help. will definitely have a look.

This is probably the marriage for Walters parents, it may give you Lucy's maiden name.

Marriages Dec 1887
HOLT Lucy Salford 8d 29
MANSFIELD Richard Salford 8d 29

this could possibly be Lucy's first marriage

Marriages Sep 1881
DAWSON Lucy Salford 8d 114
Holt William Salford 8d 114

you may need to get a copy of Hugh Holt's birth certificate to get more details on Lucy.

Births Mar 1885
Holt Hugh Oxley Salford 8d 8
