I am trying to find any info on my aunt Lucy R M Hall born Dec 19 1919 in Fishguard nr Haverfordwest Pembrokeshire I know she had a son Dennis Hall born Jan 20 1944 while she was unmarried and still at home, then she moved away and none of the family seem to know where she went to and lost touch, I have searched the BMD records on fmp but Lucy Hall seems to be a very common name and there are loads of matches so I was wondering if anyone can help to narrow it down for me, I have already got her birth cert and her sons birth cert to confirm dates etc.
I will be grateful for any help as I might have first cousins I dont even know about..

Yes I am sure of her birth date as I have her birth certificate, and I think you have her surname wrong as its Hall not Nice.

The only George E.J. Nice I could find is this one:-

Births Sep 1923 (>99%)
Nice George E J Bateman Greenwich 1d 1674

...........so date of birth is similar to that of Lucy so both would have been in their 30's.

Michael,
I know that her name was Hall, but if she married someone called Nice, then her death would have been registered under the name of Nice.

Does her birth certificate give her middle names please?

The George E J Nice from the marriage record seems to have died in 1983


England & Wales, Death Index, 1916-2006 about George Edward J Nice
Name: George Edward J Nice
Birth Date: 28 Jul 1923
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1983
Age at Death: 60
Registration district: Southwark
Inferred County: London
Volume: 15
Page: 0028

...............so maybe Lucy returned to Wales after his death. (If the marriage and death are her of course)

I dont have access to Ancestry, the name Jenny doesnt ring a bell so would it be possible to give me any more details, surname etc?
