Thank you all so much for such swift responses. Pretty new to all this. I have found a lot from the census records but am really trying to find out more about Martha and if she has any living relatives.
Thank you again for help so far. Any more news on Martha would be fantastic. ;-)

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 9 May 2013 22:44

I too thought the Roberts/ Ling marriage could be her.
The only way to confirm this would be to get some certs.

Have a look on FreeBMD because there are possible Roberts mmn Ling births from 1940 onwards in Surrey.

Afraid no one can confirm if thisis Martha s family you would have to decide if its worth getting some certs for the info
