  • Notes 
    • 1924 - Address was below rectory - was this Stocks Yard? Also in household were James CROWTHER (son?) & Jimmy SLACKE (+ presumably his wife Susannah - prior to full emancipation)

      1924 - Electoral Register voting qualification shows O which is occupational qualification - did Mary run a shop?

      1936 - Mary was buried in the existing grave of her parents, not with her husband.
