Please can someone explain why British naturalisation records for the early 20th century appear to be for men only.
Behind this question lies a second one: my great grandmother was born in Berlin in 1877. By 1891 she was in the UK with her parents and only sibling, a brother. She married a Polish-born man (my ggf) in Jan 1896 at the Great Synagogue in Duke's Place, Aldgate. Her husband became a British natural subject in Feb 1902. To the best of my imperfect knowledge, her parents did not naturalise. Would great grandma automatically have renounced - or even been forced to renounce - her German citizenship by virtue of her husband's naturalisation?
