I AM trying to trace information on Ethel Maud Herbert Coombs who was born on May 5, 1903.
In 1948, she lived in Goldhawk Road, Hammersmith, and that was the time we know she was last seen.
Her birth name was Maud Herbert, and she changed it to Ethel Maud Herbert. She married Walter James Coombs in 1923 in Fulham. Her mother was Florence Eliza Gladwell Herbert. From about 1927 to 1948, Florence was living with Otto Reinke in Fulham. Otto had 12 adult children.
Ethel Maud Herbert Coombs left her husband and four children in 1931. They never saw her again.
One Reinke family member said she last saw Aunt Ethel living on or near Goldhawk Road in 1948.
Ethel did not die using her last name of Coombs or Herbert. At some point, she must have taken the name of a partner, because I've gone over all the Ethel Maud Coombs and Herbert deaths and she is not there.
The other problem with looking for Ethel Maud Herbert Coombs is that she might not have known her birth date. Please contact me if you know anything about Ethel.
