There is NO birth on freebmd for Yvonne M Whiteside in any year

The info in the OP's post above is now shown to be inaccurate...............

The thread to which Rose refers has been deleted.........................along with whatever info had been appended

WHITESIDE, Yvonne M....married SMITH, Cyril in 1964 in Cheshire

For ref for helpers, I've been helping Karen off the board

Briefly there is a possible death, following a second marriage, which is being looked into. The only Yvonne NOT eliminated is one entering the UK during the war, birth around 1941... which seems unlikely as the marriage to Cyril makes 1944 likely birth year.

Karen, wait until you have confirned whether that is the right death? otherwise helpers will only duplicate what I have found so far :-)...

From the new thread, which takes no account of any help given..............

Desperate...looking for my mam,if anyone can help i woild be most graetful. On my last notice i put down that she was born around 1944,however i now think it was 1942. Also on her birth cert her fathers name is Harold Whiteside but now i have got her marriage cert...her fathers name is John Michael Whiteside?and he was a caravan salesman at the time. (1964)My fathers name is Cyril Smith.


Perhaps you could persuade Karen to respond on her thread...................

I have PMd Karen Reggie, will ask her to add any further details on here and will ( if it's not the death already found)) add what I have eliminated thus far.

I have already checked for births to a John M Whiteside ( as per cert) marriage on Freebmd and found no trace of an Yvonne born to the only possible marriage in UK.

Just for ref in case someone else is looking , this one that I considered, has been ruled out, as I have found another incoming passenger list, which puts her with her siblings and father ( John Patrick Whiteside) returning to Hoole,Chester.

This one ?

Lancashire Birth indexes for the years: 1944
WHITESIDE Yvonne - Garstang Preston - MULLINER

looks like father was Harold though not John


Reggie Report 16 Aug 2013 13:00

Not that birth, Mike....already proved to be wrong, by marriage cert

Karen has no firm idea about where her mother was born..............the info in her 'researching' box is guesswork


Flip Report 17 Aug 2013 13:30

Have you checked out the remarriage in 1982? She married under the names of Whiteside and Smith in Congleton /Crewe

If this marriage is correct, her husband was still in Crewe on 2012 ER

Added: the person in the phone directory with the same initials was NOT her husband - wrong post code.


FAIRTHORN Report 18 Aug 2013 07:45

how about another in 1987

on together in Chesterfield



Karen Report 18 Aug 2013 13:23

Thanks for all your help.
I have learnt that my mother was born in 1942 and her father was a John Michael Whiteside.
