Entry in the Register of Deaths for John Croucher in October-December 1957 aged 66 in Lambeth (5c 1341).

There is an entry in Ancestry Public Member Trees for John Croucher born in 1891 in Norbiton, Surrey, parents Ernest Edward and Elizabeth A Croucher, his marriage to Louisa Rose Lemon on 11 March 1919 at Parish Church of St Paul, Kingston Hill, Kingston, Surrey when he was residing at 20 Cross Road, Kingston, Surrey, his three children and his death in October 1957. Pauline Biggs and another entry give the son of Edward Croucher and Elizabeth Ann Holingdale as the John William Croucher who died on 13 August 1910 which conflicts with the 1911 census. I believe this was the son of John William Croucher and Emily Aylwin.


John Croucher was the first cousin of Frederick George Croucher, husband of Mary Ann Fullick, my fourth cousin once removed.
