There are possible marriages for Lynne (no middle initial) in Pontefract in 1976 or Hull in 1982. When were you last in contact with her?
Have you tried if she did not marry?

Do you know when/if Eric has died, as the death certificate will give the name of the informant who could be a relative?

Just for ref. for Vera:
Vera Sugden
Birth Date: abt 1926
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1959
Age at Death: 33
Registration district: Worth Valley
Inferred County: Yorkshire West Riding
Volume: 2c
Page: 53

Welcome to the boards, Barbara.

Could you just give a few birth years, or death years, or places, to help us get started?

Marriages Dec 1919
Baker Rosina E Knight Holbeck 9b 1392
Knight Sydney Baker Holbeck 9b 1392

Marjorie and Mollie born 1920, Leeds
John born 1929, Leeds (?)

If you know your cousins birth years, have you looked to see if they are in anyone's tree on here?

Cousins seem to be born 1951 to 1962 in Worth Valley district.

Have you tried
