So you ARE her niece.

Try looking on freebmd to find out whether she married...............

How did you obtain info about her actual DOB?

When/where did you - or your father - last have contact with her?

I have her birth certificate. My father last saw her in the early 1930's. I never knew her.
I do already have the 1911 Census .Don't know whether she ever married.

Just for ref:
Births Sep 1910
GRIFFITHS Margaret Richmond S 2a 495

Was she still in Surrey in the 1930's?

If she died after 1968, you can search for deaths using her date of birth.
There are not that many deaths with that birth date for Margaret with no middle name. But none are in Surrey or surrounding areas.

I am not sure whether she was still in surrey in the 1930's. As far as I know she died at fairly young age in a motor accident, sometime in the late 1950's early 1960's.

If she married it would often be from her parents' home. Were they still in Richmond in the 1930's? (Did your father marry in that area?)
Does he not remember if she married, or did she leave and never return?
A little background information helps.

In 1927 Margaret's mother died and as a result the children were left to look after themselves. My father was 11 at the time and recalls the their father did nothing. My Dad did marry in the area in 1940. He didn't know whether Margaret ever married and never knew much about her. Sadly once the mother died the family drifted apart.
