Gladys Ingham 1892-1976

Gladys Ingham was born at Derby on 22 Aug 1892.

Her parents were Charles Ingham and Sarah Ann Hambleton.

Charles died soon after the birth of Gladys, and her mother then married Edwin Saunders. Gladys was then known as Gladys Saunders.

In the 1901 UK Census both Gladys and her sister Mabel are listed as the children of Edwin Saunders but are really his step-children.

Gladys Ingham married Cyril Oliver Underwood born at Chellaston, Derbyshire in 1896, on 08 October 1919 at Derby. (See Cyril Oliver Underwood ''Future Research Needed' note for reasons for his middle name discrepancy)

They had at least one child, but possibly more (see following research note re children)

  1. Cyril G Underwood, Registered 1926 Derby (definite)
  2. William N Underwood, Registered 1926 Croydon (possible)

She died at Derby in 1976.

Children of Cyril Oliver Underwood and Gladys Ingham

A search for Underwood children whose mother's maiden name was Ingham finds two children whose births were registered in the same quarter of 1926 but in different places, the first, Cyril G Underwood is definitely their child. The second was William N Underwood.


  1. Despite the appearance, they were not related, or
  2. They were twins who were registered in different places, or
  3. They were non-twins, one of whose birth was registered late.

Sight of actual birth certificate, with full names of parents would probably clear this up.
