"Emma" in Salford, Ampthill in 1921

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


ArgyllGran Report 1 Jul 2024 13:20

Please, will some kind person post the 1921 Census details for a household in Salford, Ampthill, Bedfordshire?

Emma Greenhood , born 1847 Oxfordshire;
James Morris Greenhood, born 1844 Salford, Beds

and another Emma, according to the basic free search, when hovering the cursor.

I don't know her surname.
When I search for females named Emma in Salford, Ampthill, only four show up, including Emma Greenhood.
None of the other three appear to be with the Greenhoods.

Perhaps the other Emma is a mistranscription and doesn't exist ??

Just 1921, please - I don't need anything else.

Thanks, Greyghost.

The "other" Emma is a phantom after all.
