Frederick Arthur Saggers

This is the only photograph I have got of our Great Grandfather Frederick Arthur Saggers,he worked with horses as a coachman and as a groom,I have researched him and his family  quite thoroughly and so did Sylvie and we could never find a record of his marriage to our Great Grandmother Minnie Dyer Martin ,when the 1911 census was released that gave me confirmation that they had  never got round to getting married,the section for how long they had been married had been left blank! you will find a copy of the 1911 census return on this website that I posted a while ago.
  Minnie Martin came from a middle class  family ,her Father Alfred Martin worked for his wife's Aunt who owned a large Drapers shop in Islington ,his wife whose name was Emma Bennett Worth (our great great grandmother) she was the daughter of William Worth who was a Superintendant Wesleyan minister,Emma had also been working for her aunt so I assume that is how her and Alfred met,Emma died quite young and Alfred re-married twice more,his third wife was forty years younger than him!
the version I got from Mum about Frederick Saggers was he got a job working in the Print and lost his hand in an industrial accident,for which he recieved industrial compensation,soon after receiving the money,he left Minnie and the children,I have not so far traced where he went afterwards,I will keep you posted if I find out.
another interesting thing about him was he had a brother born three years previous to him by the same parents  named Frederick William!
