Welcome to the boards, James.

Do you know if Joyce used the surname Day or Wankling?
Do you know if she is still alive?
When were you last in contact with her, and how are you related to her?

There are 3 marriages for Joyce W Day showing on ancestry.
1953 in Ealing to a Hutton. Joyce W Hutton showing on in Camberley in 2002.

Have you looked to see if she is in anyone's tree on here?
