Thomas Henry Surtees, born in 1890 in Rotherham, is my second cousin, thrice removed and son of Frederick Surtees and Elizabeth Ann Cokeley.
In 1918, in All Saints’ Church, Rotherham, Thomas married Fanny Todd and together they issued four children, called, Ada, Hilda, Thomas Henry and Ronald.
It is interesting to note that Fanny’s sister, Harriet, married my first cousin, thrice removed, Ernest Burton.
Below are obituaries for Thomas and Fanny.
