Welcome to the boards, Heather.

Do you know if Barbara and Albert have both died, as Barbara would only be 77?
(I think the marriage was 1956 not 1936)

Ramsgate, Kent, on ER.

Do you know for sure she married in Kent. There is another Barbara F Long born in Lambeth.

PM received from Heather -

'was told they were in labrador canada but have found marriage but not the 2 children yet'.

I have not found any births in the Thanet district where they married, and where they are still/now living, unless they went to Canada, had two children and came back.

It is possible this is not the correct marriage.

If she were my aunt, and I believed she was alive and living, and an address has been sent, then I would write a letter to find out.
Price of 2 stamps.
If she is, the possibilities are endless.
You can have a family re-union.
