As you probably know..she married your father (presumably) Cyril V Chamberlain ist Quarter 1952 at Edmonton london........usually the marraige would take place in her own parish.......but not always.............I have a Birth registration for Pamela A Pett.April 1930 and another 1933 both in Lewisham..........her marriage Certificate will give her father's name and origin......
can tell you her birth was not registered in Cheshire..unless her marriage to your father was not her first marriage and her maiden name was not Pett..seems unlikely.
