Have found out alot but have come to a standstill. can't afford so of the fees people want to charge to help!
Birthname - Angela Newton - d.o.b 30/04/1966 in Northamptonshire
Father - Royden Carden born 1931 sadly died in 2000
Mother frances Newton (nee Sawyer) born 1944
aware of 1 sibling Paula Newton born 1964.

Stuck ! any help advise appreciated this has been an on off search for about 10years.

Angela, I assume you are trying to locate your mother and sibling? I see your mother has a middle initial - I can't see a birth for her in England or Wales.
Have you considered getting her marriage cert to Newton - the more info you can glean about her the better.
I am assuming you have tried the usual sites - Facebook, Friends Reunited?

She married Mr Newton in 1963

Have you looked to see if she remarried
