Sandra, apart from the (now deleted) thread on Living Relatives didn't you have another thread that had lots of info on? What happened to it?

The reason that Chris posted that link to your other thread is because you are asking about the same thing twice which is not good.

It could mean that members are wasting time by duplicating research on both threads.

my dad ( her brother looked for her for years ) and sadly died in may 2005
i was determined to find her and to see if i have any relatives from that side.
i cannnot find a death cert for him and it says his name on the death cert as being the husband

Hello Sandra, one possibility is that she may have legally been married to John Wright but if they'd parted and she lived with another man called Simmons then she may have taken his name. If she was known as Simmons then that's how she was registered in that name.

If you knew her as Wright then how did you know she died as Simmons in order to get that certificate?
