Hi there-

I'm trying to find info on my grandparents

Edward Stanley GREENHALGH connected to wales??

Yvonne GORE connected to Cheltenham

(Family recollection of uncle Ron & Uncle George- unsure of which side though)

they had two kids Michael and Patricia

I have searched every census and drew up blank!

I've done BDM's and nothing?

Dont know if any one can help but it appears that they dont exist?

thank you

Tania-

that surprises me what you have found just re-read it

Pat (their daughter) i believed to be a greenhalgh this info would imply that her parents were not married then?

thanks

I have searched from 1953 back to 1945 but found no marriage.
Maybe I missed it and if so I hope someone else has better luck.

Ann-Marie Report 1 May 2009 00:21

there a is strong possibilty-

wales sounds right from very vague family history....

so he COULD be Stanley Edward Greenhalgh....

Will re-search marriages and see what comes up!
thanks

I wondered if Yvonne had a first marriage to someone called Gore?

Found this which is a bit strange................

Marriages Mar 1923 (>99%)
Farine Yvonne R M Gore Rochford 4a 9634
Farine Yvonne R M Gore Elham 2a 1863

?Same woman but 2 different places and registrations...................can anyone explain that?!

EDIT Sorry just realised Patricia's mother's mn was Gore and this one would be a bit old by then too!
