The marriage certificate would give his declared age, and the name of his father if known.

With the age, you have a better chance of finding his birth, and then names of siblings as their mother's maiden name would be shown on the index. You may have to buy several BCs until you get one where the father's name matches

Armed with that information, it might be possible to trace one of the siblings, who may know where he is.

Yes i am Sarah, i have looked at but so many people come up i dont really want to call them all there are so many pages. Marriage certificate wouldn't really tell me alot i already know what his name is and he was roughly the same age as my mum.

Maybe a copy of their marriage cert would help. at least you would have his age at marriage and fathers name . you could then look for his birth and possible siblings

So are you the Sarah named in your post?


Unknown Report 30 Nov 2012 12:56

The death index you just sent is correct for Brenda Stephens that was my birth mother


Unknown Report 30 Nov 2012 12:50

He was last seen when Brenda Stephens passed away in 1997 they were both in West Norwood - i do not know any information about him as i was too young to remember and family members have had no contact either

Yes i am related he is my birth father

Have tried searching but as i dont know much information i dont have anything to go on..

Have you considered that he may have re-married? Assuming that he was approximately the same age as his wife, of course.

'Last seen' when?

Do you know when he was born?

Are you related?

Have you carried out any searches?


Unknown Report 30 Nov 2012 12:44

I am trying to locate a man named Peter Stephens - was married to Brenda Stephens who sadly passed away in May 1997 he lived with her and his 2 children Sarah and Steven in Lambeth London and was last seen in West Norwood.
Any information at all would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.
