Re Probate of her father Stanley Prest in 1957 ,Margaret was named,however am not sure if physically available.....could possibly get copy of Stanley's Death Certificate

Yes George Stanley Richardson was Margaret's husband....understand he sometimes used middle name of Stanley just to confuse matters.

Re Margaret's birth...sorry just the year of 1918 in Ripon.

If helps George was in the RAF at time of marriage serving possibly at RAF Grantham [Spittalgate ?] On marriage certificate does say he was an RAF Accountant.

Am not aware if conscripted or regular or whether he stayed in the RAF after the War.

Many thanks for people's assistance

Am trying to trace subject relative last heard of in 1939 when she married Stanley Richardson in Grantham.

Would love to trace and as she was I understand the only child of my Gt Aunt Maude Elizabeth Snowden.

Unsure if Margaret and Stanley did not emigrate as no records National Archives of them passsing away in the UK.

Also would be great if anybody knows whether they had any children?

Only children I have managed to find so far about time of marriage are a couple in Scarboro....however these are to a different Richardson/Prest.

Any suggestions extremely welcome.
