Parents family of 12 year old killed 1914


Could someone please tell me the parents, siblings place of abode of this person
Perhaps the 1911 census may hold it.

Ethel Stringer died aged 12 1914.
11 days after the German navy bombardment of Hartlepool.
I know it's not Sheffield but need to know the details.
Looked on FreeBMD
I think mother is Sarah Ann maiden name Dixon.
Father possibly Henry Stringer.
Can anyone confirm this ?.

Mark, you will find Ethels birth reg, and all her siblings, on GRO index (it is free to use), MMN Dixon all registered Hartlepool. The marriage of her parents is on Free BMD in 1894 in Hartlepool, just before their firstborn.

Henry Stringer often went by the name of Harry, he was born in Stalybridge 1872 son of Richard and Margaret.
On the 1911 census Ethel aged 8 was living with her parents Harry Stringer aged 39 and Sarah A aged 38.
Harry’s father Richard Stringer was born in Roberttown, Liversedge near Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

Hi Dave and Gordon

I know that they lived at 10 William Street Hartlepool.
Seen the marriage of Henry Stringer and Sarah Ann Dixon in 1894.
Then i noticed these children. The later ones are listed with mothers maiden name.
But the earlier ones i only presume are theirs.

Edith 1894, Mary Jane 1896, Harry 1897, Joseph Richard 1901, Olive 1902 ,
Ethel in 1903,
Richard 1904, Sarah Ann 1905, Margaret 1906, May 1907, Richard 1907, William 1909, Elizabeth 1910, Isabel 1911, Charles 1912, Jonathan 1914, George E 1915, Jane 1915,
Joseph D 1916, Percy 1918.

Thanks for your info.
