Also ordered the marriage cert for Ethel Sharratt & John Neilson 1953 to see who Ethel lists as her father (also some info on John Neilson).
Received certs today which confirms Edith Mary as Ethel's mother.

9 Feb 1930, Maternity Home, Poulton-cum-Spital. Ethel, Girl, Father's name and occupation left blank. Mother, Edith Mary Sharratt, Domestic Servant of 1 Walker Street, Hoylake-cum-West Kirby U.D. Informant, E.M. Sharratt, Mother, Maternity Home, Poulton-cum-Spital. 19 Feb 1930, G.H. Tomlinson, Registrar.

18 Apr 1953 after banns. John Neilson, 22, Bachelor, Plumber, 22a Green Street, Stonehouse, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Father Walter Neilson, Miner. Ethel Sharratt, 23, Spinster, 26 Curzon Park North, Chester. (No father's name recorded). Witnesses M. Smith & R. Cuthbertson. Ceremony conducted by H.J. Williams.

From the information on the marriage cert I think John's parents were Walter Neilson & Elizabeth Frew (ScotlandsPeople Marr: 1930 Ref. 656/5 Stonehouse) and that John died in 2017 (ScotlandsPeople Death: 2017 Ref. 577/841 Hamilton), a year before Ethel (ScotlandsPeople Death: 2018 Ref. 566/393 Bellshill). Hamilton & Bellshill are very close to each other. One may have died in hospital and the other at home.
