Death on IGI
1881 census listed under Pearson he was a Labourer Carter Living at 22 Nelson Sq
6/30/09 1911 Census summary has him aged 54 under name Pearson living in Keighley
7/3/09 1901 Census summary has Leffrie P Bancroft aged 44 Labourer Corporation
8/21/09 corrected death from 1914 to 1913 to agree with piece of paper, probably from EOB and FreeBMD.
12/18/09 saw that death was on an undocumented IGI birth, death and marriage for Leoffric. FreeBMD has death Jun 1913 aged 57, so there is still an inconsistency as calculated age is 56
1911 census says they had 5 children but only 2 living. There are many possibilities of other 2 children on FreeBMD between 1881 and 1911 that died at birth or less than 10 which might not show on census.
