ID:651 (Anna) Louise Smith 1898-1969
Lisa's Great Grandmother
Birth    5 JUN 1898 Ferndale, Glamorgan
Death 2 JUN 1969 Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorganshire
We are having a little trouble finding out about Anna Louisa's early life and her parentage.

Firstly, we have a 1939 census which we know is Anna and the DOB is showing as 5th June 1898, However, her death index record states her birth as being 5th June 1899. 
We know she married as 'Annie' Louisa Smith in 1915. 
There are a number of possible parents but we have a likely match in 1911 for a Charles Smith and Sarah Ann Smith. We have a photo of her brother in this census and their is certainly a family resemblance to my grandfather ( especially the ears!). 
However, many other people have said that Charles Smith's name was in fact William England who married Sarah Ann Davies so we need to find out if and why he changed his name if this is the case. 
There are though, a few other possible matches we need to eliminate first and with few documents to go on this is proving difficult. We have stuck with the likely 1911 census result for now and will explore the 'England' surname but may change this if we discover conflicting evidence of different parentage later..
