Please may I have any help. I am stuck with Edith Mary Robson, born 22 Dec 1890 and died 1976. There are two people with the same name living in the same area. I think they are related but don’t know how, nor can I find any parents, she was married twice the second husband was Marriott Hurst, I don’t know her birth surname or first married name, so going around in circles, I think she had sisters as well, all seem to be from the Walkley area. Thank you in advance.
Her marriage to Marriott Hurst (30 March 1918 at St Mary’s) says she was a widow and her father was Walter Turton, cutler (deceased)
...and this seems to be the baptism:
4 Jan 1891, Edith Turton, born 22 Dec 1890. Parents Walter (cutler) and Edith.
Address was hard to read but the family are living at Court 2 no 3 House Green St in the 1891 census

Just so you are aware that Edith shows up in our database.
Look over to the left and under Parish records you will find her.
If you look under "Lest we Forget" you will also see photographs of the Menin Gate.
