Susan -

Please continue on the older thread, rather than this new one, otherwise people will repeat research already done, as indeed Maddie has done.

Previous thread with lots of info:

To summarise -

Lillian died 1913, and Charles remarried, to Ella Bristow in 1919.

Gwendoline was the only child of Charles's first marriage, and he had 2 children with Ella - a son who didn't marry and died during WW2, and a daughter who married and had 2 children, born in Exeter in 1944 and 1955.

Info about them on the other thread, as well as the names of Charles's siblings and info about some of them.
