Help with Pope/Chandler family of Stockport Cheshire

Postby weaver12 » Fri Jan 04, 2019 9:05 pm

Hi there,

I am looking for any information about the Pope/Chandler family of Stockport Cheshire. Especially about Emma Pope who married William Edward Chandler in 1901. They seem to have separated after WWI and William and his daughter Lillian moved to London and were running a Public House there. Both died in Kent. Emma died in Lancashire in 1964. My Nana was Emmas niece.

Would love to know what happened to the family after Emmas brother Walter died in 1915 as our family has no contact with them after that.

Thank you so much.
