I am searching for descendants of my Uncle Evan Thomas Griffiths b 27th Feb 1898 Seacombe Cheshire,and his wife Selina Clarice Mary Cottrill b 1902 Liverpool.
Their children were Clarice Mary 1924 Wirral and Frederick T 1927 Wirral.
Please contact me if you have any information about my relatives.I would love to contact them as my Mum was separated from her siblings aged 4 years,so all contact has been lost.

Have you looked for marriages for them, and also possible deaths?
Have you got birth certificates for exact date of birth?
Have you got the death certificates for Evan and Selina, to know where they were living and who was the informant (e.g. if a married daughter Clarice)?

Looks to be a daughter Lois from this marriage.

Rose,
You have given Frederick T the wrong wife.
They show (Frederick T and Diana) on 192.com for 2003 in Wallasey, but not later.

Think Clarice may have married again, to William A Holland in 1975.

She could be on bt-online.
