Hello, thanks for your reply
On his son's birth certificate it stated that he was a Blacksmith at Woolwich Arsenal. This is all we know.
We don't know where he died as nobody in the family appeared to know about him. As his son was born in Swindon and his wife and son were shown on the 1901 census in Swindon living with her parents. There are no clues as to where he died only that he died between March 1900 and August 1902 (his wife Sarah Jones remarried Edwin Manners in 1902)
I have searched for his death in this time period and have come up with possibilities and sent for death certificates, no success. Also no success in Swindon as I have been to the Crematorium where they have grave details but no success.
I do realise that Woolwich Arsenal employed some 60,000 people so somewhere along the line he was missed.
Any more suggestions please.
