    Notes 
    • Trying to work out details of Sidney's family has been difficult but with the help of his nephew Roy Minter I've concluded that the following seems to be what happened.

      Sidney married Beatrice Gilbert in Chesterfield in 1935. The BMD index suggests that they had 5 children between 1936 and 1949.
      At the time the 1939 Register was prepared Sidney was living at 60 Sheffield Road, Chesterfield M.B., Derbyshire:
      Minter, Sidney born 10 Dec 1907, married, belt builder in coal mine
      --- 1 closed record ---
      Minter, later BROOKS, then HALE, Sylvia Betty born 1 Nov 1937, below school age.

      Edna was living with her then husband Howard CARTER, in a house next to Sidney's parents.

      It seems clear that some time around 1940 or 1941 Sidney began a relationship with Edna Valerie Murfin or Murphin* and had two children with her in 1941 and 1947. What happened between 1940/41 and 1948, when Sidney and Edna got married, hasn't been established and there remain some unanswered questions:
      1. What became of Beatrice?
      2. Assuming that Beatrice was the mother of the children registered as Minters in 1940 (Gillian S), 1943 (Tony A) and 1949 (Yvonne), who was the father?
      3. Of the 5 children registered with mother's maiden name Gilbert, one (Tony A) died in infancy: what became of the other four?

      * It would appear that Edna's surname was properly MURPHIN, the name under which her birth was registered and under which she and her parents and sister were counted in the 1911 census. However, when she married both her first husband and Sidney Minter, the spelling of Edna's surname appears as MURFIN.
