Irene Gladys Rolfe (January 1911 – 22 July 1935)

Irene was the daughter of James and Florence Rolfe – she appears to have been known as Renee through her life.  She was 2 months old in 1911 and living with her parents and brother Leonard James Rolfe.  Her father worked as a plasterer.  She died in London aged 24 years old.

Florence Alice Rolfe (née Hames)  (c.1888 – 19 May 1946)

Florence was the daughter of William and Sophia Hames.  She grew up at 12 New Street, and her father worked as a chimney sweep.  She married James Rolfe in early 1907.  They had at least two children together, and it is thought maybe two more.  In 1939 James and Florence were living separately.  He was living at 6 Blossom Street with a housekeeper called May Brown. The same year Florence was living at 58 Staffordshire Street with Robert Hulyer, a rag and bone merchant.  In 1911 Robert had been a lodger with Florence’s mother Sophia.  Florence died aged around 58 years old at 58 Staffordshire Street.

James Rolfe married May Brown a few weeks after his wife’s death.
