Emmanuel's birth certificate, Ernst calls himself Charles John William WARNER.
He died sometime before 1891. When his daughter Elizabeth married Theodor WOLF
at the Borough New synagogue in Southwark, 1900, his name was given as Elijah
WARNER. Other children were born in Vienna and Teplitz. Ernst was a flour
miller. I wonder if anyone can shed any light on this elusive character.>

The only LAZARSFELD I can find in the UK census collection is a Nathan aged 21

two Lazarsfeld in the 1793 census of Bohemia.

In 1891 you can find Kate WARNER aged 60, born in Austria - widow - living on
her own means in Islington, together with her daughter Elizabeth aged 22 born
Austria and Emanuel aged 24, a commercial traveller, born in Rotherhithe [Kent]


In, 1901 Theodor WOLF aged 45 in 1901 is a stockbroker >from Austria - and he is
indeed married to Elizabeth. The couple lived in Lambeth with a live-in in
servant. Theodore [sic] WOLF was already living in London in 1891 as a boarder
in Islington, so perhaps that is where the couple met!

Try as may, I have not found the family as WARNER or LAZARSFELD Charles, Ernest
Ernst Elijah or variants in any other UK censuses. Emanuel also disappears!
Very mysterious. re the Vienna connection - there are two LAZARSFELD buried in
Vienna: Zentralfriedhof Tor I.group 19 Row 6 grave 82

Elisabeth age 39 buried 08.03.1892
Friedrich age 73 buried 02.08.1909

Could Friedrich be Ernst's brother - just a guess?
