Adele,
Have you got the marriage certificate? have you got your siblings details? It would help to give what you have already to prevent reseach being carried out for data you already have.

His fathers name was Richard E Holroyd?

You will need to order the marriage cert to be able to know his age and who his father was. Once you have his birth you will then be able to look for Siblings etc.

Richard E Holroyd married Carter, 3Q 1937, Romford, 4a 2089.

You can order the marriage cert online at the GRO, you should never pay anything more than £7. If you still live in the area it might be faster to drop into Romford registry office and order it in person.

Hello Joan and welcome to the boards.
Adele posted this thread back in 2008.........and so it is doubtful that she will check back on it now.
If you click on her name, you can send her a personal message and if she is still a member with the same email address, GR will contact her to let her know she has received a message from you.

Good luck...PH.

Edit: I meant to say Adele and not Sheila!

Ooo - how wonderful! Hopefully Adele is still using the same email address as she did in 2008.

As PricklyHolly said, send her a PM by clicking on her name. You can check if she has read the PM by looking at your out box on GR. The envelope will be white if she has, or purple if she hasn't. Give it, say, 4 weeks. If its still purple, you could try finding her address, which might be listed on 192.com. You would have to pay to view, or you could start a thread on Living Relatives, and hope that someone can access it for you.

Good luck

In your instance, click on both Joan's and Adele's names and send them a message off board. As Joan only posted a few weeks ago, she still ought to be a member.

All best wishes for a successful reunion. :-D :-D
