    Notes 
    • According to Janet Balmforth, November 2016:

      "I've some more info regarding my late grandmother Hilda Ridsdale. Her husband Joseph Downing was born in 1897. a day died the year I was born 1952. My mum's sister Clara died aged 6 months old on 10 February 1929 when mum was 3 years old. Hilda died 5 August 1978.I was looking on the family tree for the Ridsdale and noticed that my gran Hilda is listed as getting married a further 3 times, but when Joseph Downing diedin 1952 she remained a widow the rest of her life. I got the date of her exact death from a family tree from the Downing side of my late mother's family which was researched by Betty Downing. My mum died 4th August 2000."
