Gillian,

Chances are she is married and has a different surname now. Can you provide us with some more information so we can track down her surname?

When were you born? Was Christine married or unmarried when she had you?

Marlene's married name was Leatherland. Can't find anything for her after that. Possible Stanley is in a retirement home looking at electoral rolls.

I see the marriage in Derby also. I see boys born to them but the names are too hard to track down.

The husband appears on 192.com
