Yes Shirley/Patchem, I did the same but held back sending info until OP came back. She may already be in contact with the aunts/uncles.

Locator it would help if you could indicate what you have sent please.

Could you indicate if that message contains information about Sheila's present location, or other matters?

Robin, are you in contact with any of your mother's siblings to see if they can shed any light on her whereabouts? I think Jean and her second husband are in Brentwood, and in the phone book.

Could do with more information regarding her last known whereabouts - sisters birth details were amended in 1977 changing her name to Chase.

Sheila Woon is in Robin's tree on here, so perhaps she is trying to find present where-abouts of Sheila, or subsequent marriages?

Added: The information has also been added to ancestry records.

Just for info:
The Shaw/Chase marriage was in Islington in 1964.

Have you got her birth cert? You can check for any siblings she may have had and try to follow them through the BMD,s

Have a look too for a possible marriage for her. It may mean buying some certs for cross checking its the right family
