I note from your tree, Florence Timson's death in 1982, Middleton St. George, Co. Durham. What evidence do you have for this?

If this death is correct, then Florence Harrison was not born in Richmond Yorkshire,1904!

I have traced a Florence Harrison's birth registered in 1904, Richmond and her in 1911.Census.
Hi Ron,

Thanks for the reply.  Florence Timson is my maternal grandmother who died at home in Middleton St. George and I went to her funeral so know this to be true.  I am however unsure of the exact place of birth for her in 1904.

Thanks Ron,

That's exactly what I was searching for.  By any chance is Timson part  of your family tree?

Much appreciated

Your grandmother's death was registered in Darlington Registration in 1982. (Darlington Vol.1 Page 1068 q March) The entry records her date of birth as 9 January 1907.

Searching the birth index for the March quarter of 1907, reveals only four Florence Harrisons', two in Lancashire, On in Malton, Yorkshire and the one I believe to be your Grandmother, registered in "Darlington":
