Relatives in what way ?? her ancestors or do you know that she married and trying to follow her family??

I assume Eva died around the time of the birth? Very sad.

Name: Eva E Tassart
Birth Date: abt 1898
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1931
Age at Death: 33
Registration district: Lancaster
Inferred County: Lancashire
Volume: 8e
Page: 712

Maybe Henry re-married??

Marriages Jun 1934 (>99%)
Bradley Gladys Tassart Lancaster 8e 1649
Tassart Henry F Bradley Lancaster 8e 1649

I can't see any sign of Dorothy apart from her birth. Do you know for a fact that she remained in the family?

If the above is the same Henry, there was a son to the marriage. Check Freebmd for his name.

This death cert might be the way to go, to see who the informant was.

Thanks everyone, new to this.Eva was my Grandads sister, She died unfortunately at childbirth and we think? Dorothy may have been looked after by other family members but not sure, she could even have been adopted I suppose which is why I cannot trace her anywhere other than at birth. I know her father (now deceased himself )remarried and has two sons by his second wife, but they also do not know what became of her sadly.
Thanks for all suggestions/help

Just a long shot - there is a Dorothy J. Moffatt marriage in 1964, in Cumberland. I can't see a corresponding birth. Might be worth checking out in case she was adopted by the Moffatts?? But a really long shot I have to say!
