For unknown reasons, the Ancestral File Record on Familysearch.org states Mary Jane Woodward’s death date as ’31 May, 1918′. This is incorrect and it is in fact ‘8 November, 1924’. I have an old piece of note paper which has the name and address of the funeral director and Mary’s death date and age, probably handwritten by Daisy Cripps. This confirms that is was the 1924 date which she died, and corresponds to a death record of ‘Mary J Cripps’ in the district of Greenwich in the 4th quarter of 1924.
It reads: “Mary Jane Cripps Died 8th Nov. 1924 Aged 87” then has printed “W. Skilton & Son, Funeral Directors, 56 Lee High Road, Lewisham, SE13. Phone Lee Green 687.”
