Thank you Reggie. That will be very useful to me.

Best wishes,

Thank you, Penny. That is, indeed my aunt.
Is there a way that I could find information re her children if they are, in fact, still living.They are my full cousins and, since I'm collating a family history book, I'd like to have as much information as possible.

Thanks again,

There is a splendid site which you should use for getting accurate BMD info between 1837 and approx 1950. Put it in your favourites.............

Don't guess about birth years etc..............
