Have you tried a search on this site, friends reunited, facebook or the electoral rolls,
Good luck,


Sarah Report 14 Jul 2011 19:04

thanks yes we have tried all this

Sheila's parents were married ? it seems ... if she got the marriage certificate it would give Mary's age and father's name

Does Sheila know Mary's approximate date of birth ?

A Mary Alice Greene died in Hammersmith and Fulham in 2004 ( which would of course be unhappy news if this were the same person so I am glad you are doing this search for Sheila and can talk to her about it ) ... she was born in December 1928

there are so many Mary A Kelly births and marriages that no one could guess without a little more information ... the best thing would be her marriage certificate if she is known to have married

as you can see from the 'views' of your thread the chance that anyone knows anything about a person searched for here is close to zero ... when only a couple of dozen people will read the message ... but sometimes other members can help find information



Flick Report 14 Jul 2011 23:02

Name: Mary A Kelly
Spouse Surname: Greene
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1955
Find Spouse:

If you wish to obtain the marriage cert to get some facts about the couple, let me know, and I'll PM the full details you need to enable you to do so

Does Sheila have her birth cert?


chrissiex Report 14 Jul 2011 23:06

that was certainly the marriage I considered to account for the death I mentioned

given the date of the marriage it did not seem wise to post it on the board

......... my mother who is living married some time before 1955 ........


Flick Report 14 Jul 2011 23:32

Precisely why I gave no location, or GRO refs, or spouse's name!!!!! And offered to send same by PM, if required..................


Sarah Report 23 Jul 2011 21:34

ok thanks basically all the information my sister has is her biological mother sheila margaret greene couldn't cope as she had met a new bloke .
my sister rachel was fostered then adopted by the parents she has now.
sheilas mother we know was called mary alice kelly.
(was obviously also a greene before).
Then sheila married a henry chester gill who had connections with the r.a.f in the usa.
sheila and mary had connections in (barry in wales) & east glamorgan.

Sarah I see you did add to your thread so I was able to find which one it was after receiving your private message ( which did not contain any details about this thread from over a week ago )

( when something new is added to a thread someone has posted in the thread rises to the top of the list of their 'my threads' )

I realize you were quoting what I said .....

I mentioned my mother not because we are related but as an example ... my mother, who married before 1955, is living, and I would not want details of her marriage etc posted on the internet, that was why I questioned posting the details of the 1955 marriage

there is the possible Kelly Greene marriage that Flick posted and offered to send you the details so you could order that certificate if you like

the certificate would tell you the full names of the spouses and their ages and fathers' names so you could rule that marriage out or in as a possibility and might be able to find more information then about the spouses

it doesn't tell us much to say that someone had 'connections in' somewhere ...

also I'm not sure how someone could have connections with the RAF in the US or did you mean the US air force ? ... also I see now it is not Sheila but her daughter on whose behalf you are asking, is she looking for Sheila as well?

......... Sarah I see now that you have a previous thread about this at this site

I found that thread using google, so could anyone else who searches for names in your post

as member Detective said there these details could be a shock for a family member

okay google worked, I think I have found Henry and Sheila possibly in California ... or another US state ... would this make sense ??

I will send you some information privately
