Born where please?


I see from Freebmd that her birth was registered in Brentford


rootgatherer Report 26 Mar 2013 13:18

So if she married, possibly one of these?

Marriages Jun 1944 SHARP Violet R Bowell Brentford 3a 892

'Looking for' her in which sense?

She is unlikely to be alive.....

Have you tried researching her on freebmd?

Not sure what you're eliminating, Fredk.............I'm obviously missing the point


Fredk Report 26 Mar 2013 14:56

Thought it might be her then saw different parents after I had posted so just left it just in case and added elliminated different parents


rootgatherer Report 28 Mar 2013 11:55

Kay, Thanks for the PM.

If you have Violet's exact date of birth does it match the DOB given on the death registration for Rosina Violet Jones that Reggie has posted?

If it does, it would be worth considering buying the 1934 marriage certificate to check who that Violet names as her father.

If you have any feedback, please post it ON HERE


rootgatherer Report 28 Mar 2013 23:03

Reggie, here is all Kay said in the PM

"Hi, Violet was born in Acton, Middlesex. Not sure who she married, so have not been able to go any further."

So rather than reply by PM, I posted my reply here pointing out the death that you had found and suggesting the next step.

I don't think that Kay intended to upset anyone. Perhaps as it was her first post she was unsure of the procedure for replying to what had been found.
