Searching for my dad

I wonder if anyone can help? My name is Kerianne smith. I am looking for my dad who I haven't seen since I was little. I was born in slough. His mother was called Winifred hindmarch smith and father Robert smith. He had a sister called Doreen. I'm new at this so I don't really know the best way to trace him. If anyone could help I would be grateful.

The name and address of the informant on the death certificate may be a relative and helpful in your search.

You can order certificates here:

Chances are that your dad didn't register the birth as he has been out of contact.

I am trying to trace my sister. Last known to be in Slough. I lost contact about 20 years ago.
Our Mothers name was Winifred Hindmarch Smith. She was married to Bob Smith. We lived our lives in Chalvey in Slough.
We lived in Turton way.

It's worth sending a message on the link - if he has the same registered email address he will recieve it.

I think that there may be some doubt as to mmn Elliot. (for Winifred). There is a marriage for and Elliot ans Smith in Eton, Bucks that matches the births but the parents are Barbara and Terence
