Research notes

There is a birth record on the GRO for Esther Laura but not for Henrietta and vice versa for a death record. No records in between have been found for Esther. As such it has been derived that the records are for one person, registered as one name and then baptised as another. (Ling-1181 00:47, 3 January 2022 (UTC))
