Unknown Report 15 Jul 2013 19:23

Looking for Edith M Cronshaw who married abdul ghafor in 1980 @ burnley/pendle registry office. I believed she lived in burnley for a while before possibly moving to blackburn.

Genes reunited appears to indicate she was born in 1948 and her mothers maiden was clough.

Any help appreciated

3 children by the first marriage to 1975 do you have these??

The second marriage GRO recordalso refers to her first married name so its correct for two marriages

Thanks all she is my genetic mother who I have never actually met.

I'm trying to find out as much as possible before ringing people up in the phone book
.

My father never told us much about her and my mum is none the wiser either .

I am one of the four children ,my brothers and sisters are not interested in who she was and have no further info.

I spotted the two marriages as well Shirley. Its a bit
weird as my father is one of them...but he was her first marriage in 67..68 and not 1980

My previous attempts at locating her go cold after her second marriage in burnley In 1980. My father who passed away several years ago told me she may have gone to Blackburn ...

Can't find any trace of them on 192.com

Edith has some sisters. Have you tried tracing them?

Hi rose, I wasn't aware she had sisters and can't seem to determine that via this site?! How have you been able to ascertain that?

My younger brother was born in 1980 , the rest of us were Edith's children which was my fathers first marriage

Thanks
