Thank you for the information - I've taken a little while to reply because I have had to re-assess my family tree and it now means this Charles Campbell cannot be my uncle!! Charles Campbell married my Aunt (Jane Morley) in 1905 and in 1917 he would have been 37 not 28. However, there is no other death listed for Charles Campbell and Jane remarried in 1918 a William Lawson. Therefore when I came across this Charles Campbell who died in Middlesbrough (our home town) in 1916, I assumed it must have been Jane's first husband. The mystery is now where is the other Charles Campbell? More research I think!

Many thanks.
