do you have her father's occupation from the marriage cert ?

might help locate her on the 1901 & 1911 census to see what place of birth is noted..

1901 shows a Violet Mary in Shrewsbury with father Frank - a postman

a possible match in 1901 ?

Frank Turner labourer (Bricklayer), wife Elizabeth and a number of children including a Violet age 8, so born c 1893. Her place of birth is given as Dullingham, Cambridgeshire.

Hi
Ok thank you
I have her marriage certificate that says in 1923 she was 25 years old ( born 1898 ) , ( maybe told church false / wrong age ? )

On 1939 census her DOB is 13/1/1898 .....maybe false information again ?

But her death in 1952 it shows she was 59 ...making her birth in 1893

There is a baptism on FMP Cambridge Baptisms
Baptised 6 January 1897
Birth date ???1897
Violet Turner
of Stretchworth, Burrough Green
Father Frank bricklayers lab'r
Mother Elizabeth
a child Laura / Albert were both baptised on the same date

Frank Turner married Elizabeth Smith q4 1889 Newmarket v 3b p1147

1891 RG12; Piece: 1292; Folio: 51; Page: 4

Birth entry for Violet Turner
q1 1893
Newmarket
v 3B p 499
mmn SMITH

1911
58 St Andrews St Cambridge
Violet TUrner b 1892 Stretchworth Cambs

Starting to wonder what the year of birth for Violet is, on
Baptism suggests 1897 investigating whether other children were baptised on the same date may help decide
1901 census she is aged 8 b 1893
1911 b 1892
1939 she states her birth date is 13 JAN 1898 but then she was older than Harry G Horton

Information on records is only as good as the person who passes that info on and the other recalls.....my mother I thought was b 1923 on her death the hospital informed me they had 1920 recorded this answered a lot of questions I had never asked.. like she was 27 when she had me and I was 30 when I had my first child and she confirmed same age as she was when she had me????
