Their marriage cert will give ages and fathers name

Are they still alive ? Can they give you info ?

This looks like her birth with mmn Graves

Births Dec 1936 (>99%)
COWLING Pearl A Graves Glanford B. 7a 954


You can search on FreeBMD for siblings using the surname combination. And also a marriage for a Cowling to Graves.

You may need to buy certs for verification

You will need to buy their cert for their ages and fathers names so their births and census info can be found

Mmn isn't in the GRO ref before 1911 you would need to buy the birth cert for her parents names

Have you looked for her on the 1901 census?

Hi Tia

You really do need Edwin's Birth Cert. to see the names of his Mum and Dad --

The Elsie Shadlock born 1896-- I think died and was registered in March Quarter 1898

Births Sep 1896 (>99%)
Shadlock Elsie Caistor 7a 662

Deaths Mar 1898 (>99%)
Shadlock Elsie 1 Caistor 7a 461


If so not this Elsie who married Edwin's father.


Best Wishes
