Charles James Renshaw (b. 1884 in Rugby, Warwickshire) son of James Renshaw and Frances Elizabeth Green, married Lilian Mary Back, only daughter of Thomas Back and Elizabeth Mary Horn, at St Paul's Church, East Stonehouse on 29 Jul 1910, both resident at 11 St George's Terrace.

Charles and Lilian had three children:

  1. Dorothy May Renshaw b. 28 Jan 1913 (1913 M Q in DEVONPORT Volume 05B Page 519), bap. 13 Mar 1913 at St James, Devonport
  2. Margery Lilian Renshaw b. 31 Jan 1915 (1915 M Q in DEVONPORT Volume 05B Page 543), bap. 11 Jun 1915 in Stoke Damerel
  3. Bernard Charles Renshaw b. 23 Jan 1923 (1923 M Quarter in DEVONPORT Volume 05B Page 515), bap. 1923 in Devon.
In 1911 Charles Renshaw (27) Engine Fitter at Government Dockyard, from Rugby, Warwickshire and Lilian Mary Renshaw (21) were living in the household of Lilian's widowed mother, Elizabeth Mary Back.

The family were living at 7 Duckworth Street, Devonport, in 1921 and 1939.

Charles James Renshaw died, at 73, in the second quarter of 1957.

Lilian Mary Renshaw died, in 1973, at 84.

Dorothy May Renshaw died, at 27, in 1941 M Quarter in PLYMOUTH Volume 05B Page 1024. Given that her death was in the March quarter, one wonders if she may have been among the 1,174 civilians who died during the Plymouth Blitz, the heaviest period of bombing occurring in March and April 1941.

Margery Lilian Renshaw had married Howard James Ryall (b. 23 August 1914 in Fermoy, County Cork, Ireland) in 1938, in Plymouth. The couple had two daughters, born 1938 and 1944. Both Margery and Howard died in 2006.

Bernard Charles Renshaw married Valerie Frances Glanville in Plymouth in 1975. He doesn't appear to have married previously. Born Valerie Frances Bawden (b. 6 Sep 1913 in Barnstaple, Devon), she had previously married Edgar Bruce Glanville, in 1936, in St. Germans, Cornwall. The couple had two children, in 1940 and 1946, but had presumably divorced, as Edgar Bruce Glanville (b. 11 Dec 1907), died at 81, in 1988. Valerie Frances Renshaw died, at 82, in 1995. Bernard Charles Renshaw died in 2004, at 81.
