Notes for Robert Alfred KNIBBS:

Also known as: Alfred

It is a conjecture that it was this alfred Knibbs who died in 1975 at Keighley, Yorkshire.
The register shows the details for the death of Robert Alfred Knibbs, but with the same date of birth (14 Aug 1893) as our Alfred.
as far as we can see, there was no Robert Alfred Knibbs born in 1893 or even a couple of years either side of it, so I suspect that i
our Alfred may well have been Robert Alfred.

Robert's Marriage Certificate confirms his name was actually Robert Alfred.
