    I have a piece of paper giving my aunty norah the right to act for aunty minnie that was dated 1966 she was living in a home i think was at stannington i went once but dont remember going in .
    My aunt only married once to a william edward pitkeathley from blyth she was a nursing sister at walkergate hospital , walkergate newcastle .her mother was a seamstress and i havent a clue what my mam did only her first husband was from london i assume as the married in hammersmith he was called meek .

    apologies for getting Nellie's surname wrong - I was getting confused

    revised dates for Minnie Fenwick - born 9 December 1891, died June quarter 1974, registration district Northumberland Central

    Norah Fenwick married William Edward Pitkeathley, Newcastle 1968. I believe William was a widower when he married Norah. I think he had married Vera HOGG in 1939 (one son) and Vera Pitkeathley died 1967 aged 50. I think William Edward Pitkeathley's dates are 1915 - 2005 (though there is another William Edward Pitkeathley 1892-1984, but that looked less likely).

    a Charles E Fenwick married Mary GREEN, Goole registration district, September quarter 1937, but I don't think this can be relevant because Charles is on the 1939 register, unmarried with his parents at Whitley Bay.



    I'm probably just telling you things you already know !

    I'm sorry if I appear to have abandoned you - I no longer have any subscriptions to research websites which makes it difficult to help - but other forum members might be able to.
