Eva is in someone else's tree on here. Have you contacted them to share information?
How are you related to them, and what information have you already found about them?
Lots of information can be found on free bmd.
e.g. (and it is a C on the original)
Deaths Jun 1922
Woodcock John O 58 Wolstanton 6b 112

And welcome to the boards.
