Hi, Frederick was my grandfather. When he returned from the war Harriett was carrying a baby which was not his - he applied for and was given a poor man's divorce, but this was rescinded as he was caught living with Jessie, my grandmother, who had had his child. He was given custody the three children Mary, Edwin and William - they are all now deceased. Harriett's baby was born in East Grinstead.
I do not think that there is much more info I can give you - but please do contact me if you have any questions.
