Thank you for your help but I also found a Margaret Harold born in1898 in Kilkenny with Patrick Harold as Farther but on her Marriage cert in 1927 her age is 24 farther Patrick Harold and her death record has her year of birth as1902 so nothing seems to tie up. I have therefore applied for a copy if her death certificate to see what was recorded for her place of birth. Once again thank you for your help.

Hello there,

 

She is not turning up in the 1939 Electoral list.

 

That would give her birthday

 

Brendan

Hello There,

 

Was her surname Beale 1939?
