Tony Phillips

VivC Report 7 Sep 2011 08:08

Hi, I am trying to find Tony Phillips, son of Maud (Florence) & George, married to Mary, with a daughter Maria. They were in London in 1975 - don't know what part I was only 10 when I met them. Am searching on behalf of his cousin Annie who lives in Australia, they lost touch after his Mum died but she would love to get back in touch.
Thanks for any help.

Have you tried Search Trees on this site?

There is a Maria Phillips born in 1974 in London - tree owner is Maria.

Try making contact to see if you have a connection.

What was Tony's birth year?

When did his mother die?


VivC Report 7 Sep 2011 13:08

Lynski - I have searched trees & a few have the ancestors but so far not this family except those I am in touch with, so far no-one directly linked to them. Maria was born 1958 so this wouldn't be her but will check just in case - thanks.

Flick - Tony YOB 1935, mother died 1984. Thanks.

If Maria has a second name, she has two siblings

And 'Tony' is Anthony R

Thanks for the extra info on siblings. I am trying to track anyone from the family who might know how to get in touch with Anthony (Tony), if he's still alive.


Flick Report 7 Sep 2011 14:44

What about Maria's siblings?


Flick Report 7 Sep 2011 14:47

As Betty's death was comparatively recent, it may be worth getting her death cert for the informant's details...........


VivC Report 7 Sep 2011 14:52

Thanks will try that

Is it me OR as GR being acting up again :-S


VivC Report 7 Sep 2011 15:11

It does seem to be acting up a bit.
Do the brackets mean Anthony & Mary died on 2009?


Flick Report 7 Sep 2011 15:11

GR is 'acting up'...............nothing new there, then!


VivC Report 7 Sep 2011 15:11

It does seem to be acting up a bit.
Do the brackets mean Anthony & Mary died in 2009?


chrissiex Report 7 Sep 2011 15:41

Viv I know I can't tell what the brackets are :-)

if they were in the message Fairthorn sent you then maybe reply to that message to ask

since death info is only available up to 2005 I think, that is probably not what it means


FAIRTHORN Report 7 Sep 2011 16:27


Have replied back to Viv
to explain as their daughter is with them & they ALL only go up to 2009
I guess they opt out of the public register.,

PS the house has not been sold, so odds, they are all still there.



VivC Report 5 Oct 2011 13:19

I found them alive & well. Have been in touch with Tony's daughter by email & Mum will be in touch with her cousin soon. Thank you to everyone, especially Fairthorn for all your help.
