I am looking for descendents of Laura Nightingale (nee Rossiter b1888c) and Jack Crabb.
Background:
Laura N M Rossiter married Henry J Nightingale in 1905 Woodford Essex and had 5 children, Richard, William, Douglas, Albert and Laura. Henry was killed in Action 1915 and the older 3 boys went to Barnardos.

Laura married Jack Crabb in 1919, living in Carr Rd Walthamstow Essex, it is thought that Jack may have taken on or even adopted Henry's children Albert and Laura as his own, although legal adoption didn’t start until 1927.
Jack and Laura went on to have their own children Leonard, Jack and Eileen. I’m led to believe that Albert married Ivy Williams under the name Crabb, having 2 children Maureen and Albert
It would be great to hear from any of the descendents of the Crabb's, especially any information on Albert and Laura.
(Walthamstow - Woodford, Essex)

Its been great to find a connection with Sarah and find a part of my lost family... Now I have found Albert's decendents and corrected my errors, I am now looking for Laura's family.
Laura Nightingale was born 7 March 1915 South Woodford Essex, now London E18. As posted before, her mother Laura remarried, not Jack Crabb/e but Ernest Crabb/e in 1919 and lived in Carr Rd Walthamstow, I have found her birth GRO ref but nothing else in either Nightingale or Crabb/e.
Looking forward to the next break through...

As you say Ernest J Crabb married Laura N M Nightingale - registered in West Ham 3rd quarter 1919.

There is a birth registration for Ernest John Crabb also in West Ham 2nd quarter 1895 which may well be the one you are looking for.

Let me know if I can be of any further help via email at john@crabbe.info

Hi
I am the grandaughter of Leonard Crabb, whose mother was Laura May Crabb and father Ernest John Crabb. I was looking to do a family tree on the crabb family and have been looking at some of your information. I would be very grateful if you could please share a family tree if you have done one, so i can compare.
Many Thanks
Francesca
