Lily Riley - what happened to her
I'm looking for information on Lily Riley, born in Frodsham, Cheshire, England in 1893, could be 10 Dec 1892
I can find her with her parents Arthur & Emma Riley and with her siblings in 1901 and 1911. In 1913 she married George Crompton Mansfield, my grandfather. She had two children Richard b:1913 d:1914 and Marijorie b&d: 1915, both died before they were a year.
My grandfather enlisted, but after 1915 I don't know what happened to them. My Grandfather, I think ran away to Aston, Birmingham where he married a widow, Elizabeth Dorothy Babb in 1922.
But I can't find a death record for Lily between 1915 and 1922, so I can only assume that he illegally ran out on her. I can't imagine it was easy loosing two very young children, I thought Lily might have gone back to one of her sisters.
I can find a death for Lily Mansfield in 1973 in Farnworth, making her about 80 years old. I am currently waiting on the death certificate to verfiy whether it is my Lily or not.. Farnworth is where George left Lily, but I thought she might have gone back to where she grew up in Cheshire.
I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can provide.
