A-Z Challenge 2016: V is for Violet Isabelle Murch 1897
Violet Isabelle Murch was baptised in Dawlish, Devon, England on 31 October 1897.  Her father, Henry Frederick Murch was a journeyman painter, and her mother was named Alice.  But by the 1901 census, Henry Frederick has died, and Alice is living as a widow, with three-year-old Violet Isabelle, with Alice's mother- and brother-in-law in Portland Place, Exeter.

Further research has shown that Henry died (aged only 27) and Violet was born in the same quarter.  Did he ever get to see his baby?
