    Hi Edward, The only lady I can match with the initials given earlier is Beatrice Maud Docker nee Llewellyn. She married William H.
    Docker in Cardiff 1917. Below is the 1939 Register from FMP:

    The original document is quite hard to read and unfortunately too big a file to load on here.

    Household members (3 people)

    First name(s) Last name(s) Birth date Sex Occupation Marital status Schedule Schedule sub number

    Beatrice M Docker 11 Sep 1893 Female Unpaid Domestic Duties Married 70 1

    Rex L Docker 29 Apr 1926 Male At School Single 70 2

    William Henry Docker 25 Apr 1896 Male Maintenance Steam Engineer Married 70 3 [Civilian role], Auxiliary Fire Service
    at ? ? Estate.

    All residing at: looks like, "Cromerty?" Cardiff Road, Pontypridd, Pontypridd U.D., Glamorganshire, Wales.

    Beatrice, died 1962.

    William in 1967.

    And their son Rex 1997.

    They had a daughter too, Audrey Letitia Docker b 1917-1991, living at 71, Knoll Avenue, Swansea, Glamorganshire, Wales.

    Marian
    Very many thanks for taking the time to provide such a full response to my query. I now know why 43-year-old Beatrice Docker did not get the same publicity as 20-year-old Florence Roberts

    I missed this post somehow, Here's a mystery. I was n the Baron Elibank in 1952, and have had her picture on my Comp for years, but now I think it is the wrong one as it looks the same as the one Graham has put up. The ships no I have is168364.

    So Des
    168364 was Shell tanker NARANIO 1943-1961.... LINK-incl.photo

    168964 was cargo vessel BARON ELIBANK from 1946-1959 (blt 43 as Empire Ransom)....LINK-incl.photo of her as the later Armenistes
    Has this solved it?
    Cheers

    For Des:The subject of this article,the ss SEVEN SEAS SPRAY was an earlier BARON ELIBANK (141938) built 1919 as the GLASSFORD,then with Baron Line as BARON ELIBANK from 1923-1934,then becoming SEVEN SEAS SPRAY. A bit before your time Des! Your BARON ELIBANK (168964)was built in 1946.

    Yes Des, what would we do without Specsavers?
    Though I do not use them, use OPSM, find them far better.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
