Hi Janet

What was Dennis and Frank's mothers maiden name?


KathleenBell Report 21 Aug 2013 16:49

Was your father born in 1929? If he was then there is the birth of a brother Frank with two middle initials - Frank J. L. Knight. He married someone called Mary W. McLaughlin so she may have used her middle name if you knew her as Win. There are births for the children you mention with this maiden name for the mother.

There is this death (although it only gives one middle initial but the date of birth would be right):-

Name: KNIGHT, Frank James
Registration district: Liverpool
County: Lancashire
Year of registration: 1984
Month of registration: October
Date of birth: 26 March 1921
Volume no: 36
Page no: 1309
Reg no: 1084

This death could also be a possibility for Win:-

Name: KNIGHT, Mary Winifred
Registration district: Preston & South Ribble
County: Lancashire
Year of registration: 1999
Month of registration: July
Date of birth: 19 July 1921
District no: 5881D
Reg no: D54C
Ent no: 131
DOR: 799
