Hi Henk

If Adrian is correct (we won't know until you source the death notice which will give you an idea of her age) then she divorced Mr Glynn way back in 1919!!

There is also a court case in 1956 involving childrens homes etc. Altogether an interesting character.

I'll do some more digging.

Regards

Rory

John Glynn passed away in 1954. His DN entry shows surviving spouse as Alison Borthwick Glynn.

I think they married in 1906.

Could this be her marriage cert ?

If so she was only 20 when she marrried Mr Glynn in 1906 and if you have a close look at the person standing on the left of the tent pole well she looks very young to me perhaps 16/17 years old ??

All very interesting.

That Marriage Certificate has me wondering if it could be her..... if she was in the ABW she would have been 14 (at the start) and a maximum of 16 (when it ended) - I base this on the fact that she had a claimed age of 20 when she married in 1906.

Of course the unknown factor here is, as always, the misrepresentation of ages, a common occurence in days of yore.

Her DN will provide more clarity and might also provide a clue as to her profession prior to death although often it is mentioned as the husbands.

Rory,

The same thoughts crossed my mind as well. However, 16 was a suitable age to be employed in those days so perhaps we could be onto something. How old did you have to be to be a "Staff Worker" as per the Roll !?!?

The DN will be very useful.
