bit of a 'tangled web' there AliD, best left to a direct descendant to add info. I'm sure someone will help you when they read this posting. To help them recognise this family I will add a couple of approx dates

Edith Mary GREY (1890-1943)
- married Fred Rudman TARRANT in 1909
- divorced in 1926

EDITH next married Edward Victor SORENSEN (1888-1969) in 1923
FRED next married Eliza Hibbert SHEPHERD (1893-1972) in 1929

Hello!! so glad to find you, Edith Mary Grey was my maternal grandmother though sadly she passed before my birth. my paternal grandfather was Edward Victor Sorensen, I understand they were married after she was married to your grandfather Fred. I recently found out that Eadie as she was known was married prior to my grandfather and that would be your grandfather Fred. Also see online they had a son called Roy Maurice Tarrant, do you know about him? I'm Joanne, hope you see this :)

Hello Alisia!! so good to read you here and so sorry its taken this long. This site doesn't notify me when messages come through. My sister has visited me here tonight and we were talking about our new uncle and then saw your message, I think we are cousins?half? Yes my Mum, Julie Sorensen is their daughter and her brother Phillip Sorensen, both passed away now. I talked to them both about their Mum,Eadie and I am sure they knew nothing of their other siblings! My Mum would have been delighted to know them. Our grandmother, Eadie died at age 50, so my Mum was only 18 and Phillip 16. We don't have much in the way of photos of her but there is at least one I know of, I will try to get this to you asap also emailing you in case you don't see this xox
