Hi Norman

Ooops something wrong here, for Ruby to fit in with the Taylor - Mercy family being researched her father would have to have been  Francis Taylor.

She would also have to have been a sister of: Francis Dorothy Taylor.

My apologies if I have this wrong, it also throws into question : Marian Taylor born1922.?

More accurate research needed.

I think I have made certain assumptions, not wise especially with a popular name like Taylor.

Thanks
Frederick

Hi Frederick
  I gave you this information a while ago.
i did find 4 births with  Registered SURNAME -- TAYLOR  and mother MERCY !!!
the only comment i made was Ruby M  Taylor -mother Mercy born
June 1920  could not have been the sister of MARY E Taylor Mother Mercy- born Sept 1920 a physical impossibility
The only other two births were Marian TAYLOR mother MERCY  June 1922 and the last one in 1926 was Frances D Taylor mother Mercy  ,wasn`t sure if this baby was male or female but would have thought a son would have been FRANCIS.
 ARE/WERE there Two Mercy Taylors  ?in the area a bit of a  real coincidence if this is so. Of course it could be the wrong birthdate
transcibed for Mary E Taylor, Unfortunately I destroyed all my notes
as I thought you had everything you needed

I saw the post regarding the 1911 census

The boarder Fred Long was my great-grandfather.  I found out this information from Fred Clark.  What I didn't know was that in 1911 it was noted he was married and was born in Bath.

I don't have any information on him and I don't know where to start.

What I do know is that he married Ellen Taylor in 1919 and there were several children (3 boys, 1 girl I believe).  My grandfather Francis Walter (known as Walter) was born in January 1917 and so I think that him and any older siblings were probably from Fred's previous marriage and not his marriage to Ellen.  I don't have a copy of Walter's birth certificate and as I don't know where he was born it would be difficult to get a copy.

Any help in getting to the bottom of this would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mary Ellen Taylor was my maternal grandmother, her first husband was John Taylor ( my grandfather ) who died in 1907, before his death he fathered 5 children, one of which was my mother.
Mary Ellen remarried to Frederick J. Long in 1919,  it would seem that 4 children came from this union.
Albert T Long born 1911  -  Myrtle I T Long born 1912  -  Frederick E Long born 1915  -  Francis W Long born 1917
In the birth records all the Long children had Mary Ellen listed as mother.
I have a family tree on My Heritage site if you wish to view it, you would have to pm me your email address and I will then invite you to join.
I have photos of all  except John Taylor & Myrtle,  would you care to see them ?, if I can help further let me know.

Aug.4th is the 100th. anniversary of the start of WW1, so I think it appropriate to pay tribute to my relations who served in this conflict. Three of my uncles served, two survived, one lost his life at the battle of the somme.
In the photo looking from left to right :

In naval uniform is my uncle George Hale,, this was taken in 1915 when he joined up, he was 16-17 years old. George Hale (ex miner)  survived the war.The ship on his hat is HMS Erin. Looking at the photo, he was so very young to be going to war.

The man standing in the middle is my uncle  15811 SIDNEY ERNEST SMITH, he was a Private in the South Wales Borderers 2nd Bn.and was sadly killed at the Somme in France in 1916 ,aged 27 years. Sidney died  before I was born and is commemorated at the Thiepval Memorial in France. Sidney was added to to the photo of my other two uncles by photoshop

The young man on the right ( sitting ) is  my uncle 33262  Private Francis Taylor, 2nd Batt South Wales Borderers 1899 - 1942. - Francis who also survived WW1.
If you have been following this post you will know that Francis was awarded the DISTINGUISHED SERVICE MEDAL 1914-1920. it reads,
Private Francis Taylor, 2nd Batt South Wales Borderers of ABERTILLERY .
At ZILBEKE, on 28th September 1918. for most   Gallantry and determination he assisted in the Capture of an enemy Pillbox
which was offering stubborn resistance, Working around to the back he charged two of the enemy killing one, he himself was bayoneted by the other one, but he killed him and the rest surrendered. Again on 29th Sept he brought in his severely wounded Platoon Sergeant,under heavy machine gun fire..

I have also been in touch with another site which is in the process of being formed called Blaenu Gwent Remembers, this site has been asking for help from anyone who had a family member living in Gwent area of wales who served in WW1, the above details  have been forwarded. This is an ongoing project and will contain lots of info including photos, family stories etc.  Please follow link - copy and paste into your browser.

The war  touched almost everyone’s life in some way or other. Please share.

Thank you for the above.
A lot of my relations lived between 1-9 oxford st. including myself  in the early 1940's I was being looked after by my uncle George Hale and my aunt Liz., George is the only uncle I have any memories of.
It would be helpful if you could confirm the house number for Francis in Alma St. I believe it to be no. 25 but it could have been 95. Thanks

Francis Taylor did live at 95 Alma Street between 1935 - 1938, along with Doris Taylor, Mary Ellen Mercy and Enid Lorraine Stickler.


Obviously he passed over in 1942 and when the books resurfaced in 1945 the same three ladies were living there.
The following year Enid Lorraine Stickler moved out and Arthur Hook moved in.
This is the register for 1947 and it looks like Doris Taylor married Arthur Hook.
