Notes for Benjamin (Bennie) Stanhope COHEN
Benjamin too the last name of his wife Edith.

So far the registration of his birth has not been found. He was the Bennie of Bennie S Cohen and the owner of the insurance company of that name that my grandfather, Samuel Sydney Cohen managed for years. It is now Edward Lumley, or Lumley Limited. His son took his mother's maiden name and at some time altered the name of the company. I don't know when the name Stanhope was taken.

No evidence has been found regarding his date of birth.

English probates show - Bennie Stanhope Cohen of 11 Stanley Crescent Notting Hill died 8 Jan 1926, Probate London 24 March to Edith Elizabeth Cohen widow and Edward Lumley Lumley insurance broker Effects UKL 4,748-15-4d.
