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.”

    I am the great granddaughter of Percy Charles Cripps, gg granddaughter of Charles William Cripps, ggg of John William Cripps. I have a lot I can share with you on our Cripps family, as well as, our Woodward and Geary families. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed looking at the pictures on your website. What a treasure! I live in Utah in the United States. I found a baptism record for Charles Cripps a few years back and was able to find more records on our family when I was in London in 2009. Charles Cripps was baptised 14 Jun 1795 in St James, Westminster.

    Charles Cripps parents are George Cripps and Sarah Goadby. My mother and I have been able to piece together some of their children. Please contact me!
