I'm trying to find my father's cousin Linda Mary Allsopp who was born in Surrey in 1947, I believe that she was living in Westgate, Kent in the early 1950s and may have gone into the teaching profession. Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the boards Jane!
Have you tried 192.com, Friends Reunited, Facebook or BT online?
I sort of guess you do not believe she married?

There are 5 marriages for the name between 1971 and 2003, all in Midland counties of England

Have you checked on here in 'search all trees'?

Do you know her parents' names? She seems to have been an only child, and her mother's maiden name is quite unusual, but I can't find a marriage for her parents.
If you can't find her any other way you might try seeing if you can find a death for one or both of her parents in case she was the one who registered it.

Perhaps the mother had been married before.....the birth was not long after the end of WW2

Which of your grandparents is the link between Linda and your father?

Never thought I would ever see anyone that I knew on these boards but you can disregard the marriage in Lewisham 71 as that was actually to my brother and she was born in 51 Lambeth (mmn Beszant) and had twin sisters and a brother.

Who was her mother as she is also registered under her mother's maiden name so her parents were not married.
