  • Notes 
    • From John KEMP: 'Lewis stayed with his father until his death, then went to the north east looking for work. Kept his Suffolk accent all his life' BUT Lewis was in fact married at 18, in Hartlepool!

      The address given by Lewis on his marriage was occupied by Ellen & George MUNDAY on 1891 census (Lewis not at that address in 1891). Was Lewis a lodger there and married Ellen's cousin - Alice Maud? Is Ellen MUNDAY daughter of Jane RUSHBROOK (both born in Stockton, Durham. Jane's husband, George RUSHBROOK was born in Thurgarten, Norfolk. Was he brother of Mary A BIRCHAM?

      Burial: Section A, grave 435, 9 rows across and 3 up from bottom (miss first 4). Buried with his wife and daughter Eliza Ann COOK and Walter COOK. Lewis wa owner of grave.
