I saw your message on the Capener page...there is more to this than meets the eye.apparently when my Grandfather, Robert Henry Capener 'married' Angel he was still married to my Grandmother Olive Capener who lived in Liverpool with her seven children, my Mum being one of them.
apparently he got another girl pregnant at the same time as my Grandma was pregnant with my Uncle Paul. Presumably this then was Angel, (but I don't know for sure) He left my Grandma to live with the other girl, but continued to pay her some sort of maintenence.
It was only when Grandma went to the Post Office to collect the weekly cash that she was told one day, 'Sorry love there's nothing for you, your husband's dead'Just like that.
It all came out when Angel tried to claim Army Widow's pension that she was told sorry, you're not his widow Olive Capener (My grandmother) is the widow.
Still with it so far?
