  • Notes 
    • In the 1901 Census, after his marriage to Margaret Ellen, he is shown as, Christopher Bern (29) and Margaret is listed as Margaret Bern (26). In this instance, the surname 'Bern' is deliberate and not one of the many misspelled variations. They are living at, 43 Tunnel Rd, Edge Hill, Bootle – where Dorothy Vera was born ! The (very) odd thing is their occupation at that time, which was that of ‘Hairdresser (Master)’ and ‘Assistant Hairdresser’. I can’t figure that one out.
