There is a lot of information on your other thread -

If anyone was to make an internet search, that thread would be one of the results. Rather than having 2 {edit - 3!} threads on the same person, it might be best to stick to the one. Just add a post asking for anyone who knew her to contact you by PM.

In the meantime, you could write to the neighbours, or follow up the suggestion on your other thread re contacting the informant, Anthony J L Moule.

If John Wright died after 2005, he won't be listed on the GRO indexes available on the internet - they only go up until 2005/6

There are numerous threads about this woman..................the one you highlighted D E T has been 'marked as answered'

If my memory isn't failing me, the post by the chap Moule on Sandra's thread was ignored ..........

i have been checking out gloria may simmins and this is my auntie, still do not know why she had changed her name to simmins.
i phoned the church, council in gillingham they were very helpful
ive found out she is the cremortoriam in yovill which is 10 miles from gillingham dorset. there is no head stone.
my next step is to try and find out who sold her house in 2006
still cannot find anything relating to her husband or if she had any family
i am going to also try the land registery to see if they both were on that , also i have wrote a letter to the man who found her when she died. he was a director of a company i do not know if he still is.
i do appeciate all the help people have been giving me as they told me her name might be simmins and now i know where she is i just want to see if i have anymore family :-)
