From: Alan Carter - here is the entry for our Strange family
Debbie Williams' mother is Elizabeth Anne STRANGE born 21 May 1929 daughter of Frank born 5 July 1893 in Hastings he was a son of Alfred W. below.
I'll get the marriage details from her, if she knows. Elizabeth Anne Strange married Norman Victor Poynton of Liverpool, must have been c1950. (Note from Graham Price - Norman Victor  Poynton of Liverpool was my second cousin once removed; he passed on in 1975 and is laid to rest by his wife Frances (first wife  who- died 1950s, so looks like he married again and they had Debbie). Debbie Williams will then be my third cousin. If anyone knows of Debbie or Alan Carter, could they please get in touch..)

From: Janet McBride December 2006
Looking for info on Alice strange poss birth abt 1878.  had a son called Albert Edward Bazen c1897, possible father Thomas Bazen possibly from Portsmouth, Beeding or Baring area.

I have been having some luck with the census returns and think I may have unraveled some of our mystery. However, none of it is proven as yet.  I'm  little stuck as to how to prove any of it as the person in the middle of it all is baby Albert Edward b 1897 who was known as Albert Edward Bazen in later life and said that he was illegitimate and that he was brought up by an aunt and his mother then went on to have more children and she died young.  I can't find any Albert Edward Bazen references but have found Albert Strange in a family where everything else fits. Unfortunately his birth certificate shows him as Albert Edward Bazen and appears to say that Alice and father Thomas Bazen were married. There are no references for this and we have no explanation as to why he would be Albert Strange as a child and then become Bazen in adult life;.other than that he joined the navy as a young boy (poss age 9 or 10) and maybe then he would have used his father's name and it stuck.
I see from this website there is William Strange the railway line worker in 1881 and say he is one of Stan Judge's Rellies.
Here is what I have come up with
1891 Census Steyning, Sussex - See above:

1881 Census, Botolphs, Shoreham, Sussex, Railway Cottages, RG11; Piece: 1101; Folio: 7; Page: 4;
Father: William Strange 36, Head, Platelayer On The Line , born Hanney, Berkshire, England
Wife  Mary Jane
Household Members:Charles Anscombe 17; Ada Strange 1; Alice Strange 3; Emma Strange  6;
Mary Jane Strange 34; Sarah Strange 8; William Strange 36; William Strange 10

In 1901 - the father appears to have died.
Death Sep 1897 William Strange  52   Steyning  2b 190

Mother is living with daughter Ada - now shown as Ada Tuck married but no sign of husband who I think she married Jan-Mar 1901.
Q1 1901 Ada STRANGE to William JohnTuck Steyning 2b 429

Also, there is a 3 year-old Albert Strange which we think may well be Alice's son Albert Edward Strange - who later took on his father's name of Albert Edward Bazen. The census shows him as son of the mother who is 52 years old which seems unlikely.

1901 Steyning, Sussex Census RG13; Piece: 947; Folio: 54; Page: 9; Sched 50
Albert Ed Strange 3 Son Mother's name:  Mary Jane born:     Broadwater, Sussex, England
Household Members:
Mary Ann Mace 82 (boarder/lodger); Albert Ed Strange  3 son (although we suspect this is actually Alice's son);
David Strange 14 son; Florence S Strange  16 dau; Mary Jane Strange 52 (widow)
Ada Tuck 21 (married) .

Meanwhile - although not possible to prove - Alice appears to be working nearby as a servant in 1901:
1901 Steyning Sussex RG13; Piece: 947; Folio: 27; Page: 11. Census
Alice Strange Servant 24 born: Wantage, Berkshire domestic servant
Household Members: GOULD family
Alice Strange   24

It looks like Alice then went on to Marry in 1906

Q4 1906 Alfred DALMON to Alice STRANGE Steyning 2b     667

Death Q1 1908
Alice Dalmon  31 Brighton 2b     160
She may have had some of the following children in this time (possibly before her marriage). Note that one is called Alfred the same as her husband.

Births Q1 1906
Alfred Leslie Dalmon  Steyning
Stanley James Dalmon   Steyning

Birth Q3 1907
George Edward Dalmon Steyning

Alfred then appears to marry again in 1913
Q1 1913 Alfred Dalmon  to Ada E Thurley  Steyning

If baby Albert Strange is Albert Edward Bazen then he had a son also called Albert Edward Bazen who joined the RAF and died in a plane crash in 1950.  I found this posting on an RAF site which gave us lots of info to follow up on;  from 'Last Take Off':
"5 April 1950 Wellington T10 NC615 2ANS West of Horam, E Sussex.  The a/c was descending in a very steep dive and at about 1000' it broke up. The reason for the initial dive could not be established. Pilot II Gordon James MURDOCH, Signaller II Albert Edward BAZEN, F/Lt Harry SELMAN F/Lt William Alfred RYDE".
