Is this the marriage? :-


Name: EMERY, Malcolm A
Registration district: Paddington
County: London
Year of registration: 1949
Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Spouse's last name: Newton
Volume no: 5D
Page no: 447

Name: NEWTON, Margaret H
Registration district: Paddington
County: London
Year of registration: 1949
Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Spouse's last name: Emery
Volume no: 5D
Page no: 447

If so this is the nearest birth I can see for a Margaret H. Newton - but it is not in Gateshead:-


Name: NEWTON, Margaret H
Registration district: Sedgefield
County: Durham
Year of registration: 1921
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Mother's maiden name: Harrison
Volume no: 10A
Page no: 443

There is also this birth in Tynemouth:-

Name: NEWTON, Margaret
Registration district: Tynemouth
County: Northumberland
Year of registration: 1923
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Mother's maiden name: Metcalfe
Volume no: 10B
Page no: 383

If Margaret's birthdate was 9th April then I would think the Sedgefield birth would be more likely as that was registered in the June quarter which would be right.

How do you know her exact date of birth? Do you have her birth certificate?

Use freebmd to look for info yourself

Buy the death cert to see where the informant thinks she was born

Reggie

Not sure how Dopeydoc would have got the date of birth from the death index----not with the right name and place of death !!!

I can't see a "Margaret Emery" death index in Northumberland for 1988.

All I seached for was Margaret born April 9th 1923 who died in Northumberland in 1988 (Dates as OP)

It just came up with Margaret Webb( who MAY have been the Margaret Emery who married Arthur W Webb as in my above post.

But not coming up with a Margaret Newton for dates as OP !!!

I wrongly assumed that the info given about the death was accurate........on past experience, I should have known better!

None of what was originally posted seems to have any basis in fact

There must be some "basic facts" Maybe right names but wrong places or dates.
We all know how easy it is to go down the wrong "track" in family history, but with a few questions and answers hopefully it can soon be put on the right track.again.

I love a good mystery anyway :-D
