Notes

I cannot find him in the 1891 census when I assume he was living in Ireland as his father died in County Mayo in 1891 although his brother Sidney was born in Southsea in the middle of the year.

In the 1901 census as Frank Croucher aged 11, born in Ireland, and living with his uncle and aunt (Mark and Caroline Robinson) and brother (Sidney) in 3 rooms at 8 Dorset Place, Weymouth, Dorset. This address was shared with another family.

In the 1911 census as Frank William Croucher aged 21 and living with Emily Jane (mother?) and Alban Thomas (brother?) in Portsmouth, Hampshire.

Marriage of Frank W Croucher and Ivy E Allen in FreeBMD in January-March 1915 in Portsmouth (2b 729).

His children were all born in Portsmouth between 1915 and 1930.

His wife died in Gosport in 1976.
