    • GRO ref: Powell, George J q2 1916 aged 31 Faversham RD 2a 1168

      Died in a large explosion at a gunpowder factory at Uplees on the banks of the Swale which killed over 100. Since his death was registered his body must have been recognisable, unlike many whose deaths could not therefore be registered.

      More information about the accident can be found on the Roll of Honour website, commemorating the victims.

    • GRO ref: POWELL, William to Glassby, Margaret q4 1869 Sheppey RD 2a 1235
      While the marriage registration index shows Margaret as a GLASSBY, her maiden name is shown as CLASPER in the birth registrations of all of her children. 

      Had Margaret been previously married to a Glassby? - I can find no such marriage, perhaps it was a mishearing of Clasper, especially if said in a Mackem accent.
