HI,just reading through this again and realize that there is an error.
It says that Eleanor May Northover married james Richard CROFTS.
This is an error, Ethel May Northover born 1887 and died 1944 married James Richard CROFTS.Ethel is my grandmothers sister, second daughter of William and Catherine(Power) Northover.
I will double check with my Dad's cousin who is still alive and used to stay with Ethel as a child.
I do know the Crofts name was well mentioned in our family as they were undertakers,don't know why that got them extra mention but it did.
Thanks Alison B.Cooper
