Looking for a Cecilia Baker born 1917 in Birmingham daughter of Ann Morrall and Alfred Baker. This is another daughter who we just have found ot about. She Married a Wilfred Bennett Sept 1937, Family say they had one son Alan Bennett. Wilfred Bennett went of to war and Cecilia met some one else ive just Discovered a Horace Doody in June 1947 Birmingham. These two dissapeared and the Dad and son stayed in Birmingham I see Dad Wilfred died Sept 1964. What happened to son Alan and other couple it looks like they could have left Britain cant find on BMD and i cant get on to find my past. Could anyone help it be nice to put a closure to the family.

Are you sure about the son, Alan.

The one I posted on your other thread was born in 1929 and Cecilia didn't marry until 1937????

Did you look on FreeBMD to see who the other 4 possible children are born after 1937????

Have sent you a personal message (look under your Messages tab above) regarding the children.

So Alan stayed with his dad Walter?? who was the informant on Walters death cert.

Edit :So Alan with father Wilfred. ?? who was the informant on Wilfred's death cert.

The marriage was 1947 for Horace.

I have sent a PM with information regarding Horace and possible subsequent marriage for Cecilia after Horace.
