Hello Fowler

Might this be her marriage?

England & Wales, Marriage Index, 1916-2005
Iris R Thurlow

Spouse Surname:
Long...Ernest H W
Date of Registration:
Jul-Aug-Sep 1948
Registration District:
Inferred County:
Volume Number:
Page Number:

There is another Iris R Thurlow, married 1946 in Hitchin

Both ladies were born In Romford

Misty x

There are no Long/Thurlow births in Essex that would fit in....

Have you got her birth certificate, and have looked for any siblings for her?

Is Iris Ray Thurlow born in 1944 in someone's tree on here also connected?



fowler Report 4 Jul 2013 10:21

thanks for your help I also found the above marriage and wondered if it was I was adopted so do not have all that much information I do not know how old she was or when she was born or the fathers name so I think I am looking at a needle in a hay stack. thanks

If you haven't already done so, add yourself to the national adoption contact register

There were two births in Essex for Iris R Thurlow.........and two marriages.

In which year were you born?

That might help with pinpointing the right Iris.


fowler Report 4 Jul 2013 14:37

thanks I do have a birth certificate but it has no birth dates on it only mine so I am guesing at the dates


Reggie Report 4 Jul 2013 15:19

That was why I asked you the year of YOUR birth.................


fowler Report 4 Jul 2013 19:37

hi reggie I was born in the march of1944


Reggie Report 4 Jul 2013 22:27

So, either birth could be your mother........that's a blow

The only way to find out for sure is to purchase the's unlikely, I would have thought, that both had the second forename Ray.
