Trying to trace a Bernard Crehan, I'm not sure of his birthdate but probably between 1915-1919, he married or lived with a Georgina M Todd. I found them in 1948 living as man and wife in Hampstead and from 1951-1958 in Wandsworth. Then nothing after that...I do know that Bernard had a sister Margaret who married Georginas brother Joseph Todd in 1933..

His birth should be on FreeBMD or try looking for his sisters records ie her birth and marriage

Mmm the birth for Margaret in 1894 would make her in her 40s when she married and a good 10 years older that Joseph...

looks like there may be a daughter for margeret & joseph in 1937.

take a look on freeBMD

As Shirley advised you really need to obtain a copy of the 1933 marriage certificate to find out what age she was when getting married and who her father was. Crehan is of course a common surname in Ireland so perhaps Bernard and Mary originated there.

It looks possible that the 1933 marriage produced a child in 1937.

Bernard was definatley arounf in 1959, living in Wandsworth with Georgina M ..It would appear they had a daughter Sandra H Crehan born 1948, I did see her on the genes site but she hasnt replied...Pity, it would save such a lot of going around in circles.. :-(

Interestingly Sandra A married in Melton Mowbray which is where Georgina died so looks like the family moved.

The death cert for Georgina will say if she was wife or widow of so you will know if Bernard was still alive then


Edit if you check her birth she is Sandra A not Sandra H
