During February 1919 in Gloucester Alfred PIMBLE, his daughter and granddaughter died

I visited Gloucester Archive last Tuesday to take photos of some key PIMBLE documents and these including some of the Wills available.

Two of the Wills were for father and daughter Alfred and Emily PIMBLE, both of 70 Melbourne Road, Gloucester.

Alfred PIMBLE died on 8th February aged 76. he left his estate which included three houses in Melbourne Road, to his sole surviving daughter Emily. However sadly Emily died on the 27 February at the age of 53 and before Probate of Alfred's Will had been granted. Emily made her Will on the 24 February just 3 days before her own demise. Emily left her estate to her niece Gwendoline STRONG, Gwendoline's sister Phylis having died on the 18th February!

Separate causes of death? or a common cause? - I'll try newspaper cuttings first, other than that, can I justify the nearly £30 in certificates to find out!

The wills are to be found on, though you will need to sign up for free access to get sight of the documents.
