Hello Kathleen, what do you mean by tracing her? Are you trying to find her later life?

It's odd that her birth was registered as Broughton when her mother was Charman? What does it say on the birth certificate for her mother - was she Broughton, formerly Charman?

Can't quite work out what your post is trying to convey............

Who are you looking for?

Who was Doreen's MOTHER?

Hi Kathleen.....

Just for Info...

England & Wales, Birth Index, 1916-2005
Name: Doreen S Broughton
Mother's Maiden Surname: Charman
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1927
Registration district: Bristol
Inferred County: Shropshire
Volume Number: 6a

There are a number of marriages for D Broughton (none for Doreen S that I can see) but none in the Bristol area...so impossible to pinpoint your Doreen, you would need marriage to find any children she may have had, unless she had them out of wedlock....then you have very little chance of ever finding them I'm afraid.

Do you have any other scrap of info that may help....

Adopted?
If Alfred died in 1919 before first child, and second child with no acknowledged Father, and widow has not remarried...
Does the cousin not have some more information?
