Maureen Lovelock, youngest daughter of Frank Lovelock and Rosa Louisa Collins, moved up north and lost touch with all London relations. Would like to find living relatives. At present having much more luck finding 19th. and 18th ccntury links than those of today!

She appears to have middle names if birth in 1936 is correct one

Have you looked for any possible marriage


GlitterBaby Report 28 Jun 2013 22:48

Wow that is a quick nudge up the boards - give members a chance please


GlitterBaby Report 28 Jun 2013 22:50

Possible marriage in 1957 in Nottinghamshire

Have you followed through on that

When you ask for help......dates are vital.

Do you know about freebmd?

Use it to look for info....................i.e. the marriage referred to by GlitterBaby, and children thereof

Marriages Sep 1920 (>99%)
Collins Rose L Lovelock Holborn 1b 1474

There is a probable re-marriage in 1985 for Maureen


Flip Report 29 Jun 2013 06:58

Your post isn't too clear, are you looking for Maureen's other siblings and their descendants or are you looking for Maureen and her family?

There looks to be 4 siblings born 1920-1926, then a 10 year gap to Maureen.

Added: Frank & Rosa were living at 19 Hermit Street in 1938 and in 1947 Gladys R was recorded with them. All 3 of them were still at this address in 1964, until Rosa's death in 1965. Frank died 1967 I think. No sign of Maureen's other siblings with them though.

Have you tried to contact anyone on here who has Frank or Rose in their trees, and do they also show in your tree so that others can make contact with you?


Flip Report 1 Jul 2013 10:51

PM received from Veronica, have asked her to post on here.

She is not looking for Maureen, she is trying to find the descendants of Maureen's siblings.


Reggie Report 1 Jul 2013 10:55

Thanks Flip


Look for info using freebmd.........

Look in 'search all trees' already advised


Reggie Report 1 Jul 2013 10:59

No descendants from the eldest child

Reggie Report 1 Jul 2013 11:08

Can't see any record apart from his birth for the other son....................perhaps he didn't like his first name, and used/uses one of his other forenames


Reggie Report 1 Jul 2013 11:12

Deaths Sep 1965 (>99%)
LOVELOCK ROSA L 68 St.Pancras 5d 300


Veronica Report 1 Jul 2013 14:27

Thanks Reggie for all the useful information. Think I shall have to buy cert. for birth of Augustus W.R. Lovelock to see if he was really Rosa and Frank's son. Strange that birth was registered in Lambeth.
Thanks again, Veronica


Flip Report 1 Jul 2013 15:37

Actually after looking at it again, I think Augustus was probably the product of this marriage:

Marriages Sep 1924 (>99%)

Collins Lillian M Lovelock Lambeth 1d 853
Lovelock Augustus Collins Lambeth 1d 853

And so not related.


Flip Report 1 Jul 2013 15:48

Veronica, do you have any idea what the M is for Joan, and do you have her exact dob by any chance?


Veronica Report 1 Jul 2013 19:32

The M is for Madeleine but I only know that she was born in 1923.
Thanks, Veronica


Reggie Report 1 Jul 2013 22:26

Have you followed-through on the two possible marriages for Joan?

They are on freebmd.....................
