Welcome to the boards Anthony.

Sorry to appear a moaner on your first thread, but please will you edit your post to remove your email address for your own protection? The site isn't secure, and the address could easily result in you being inundated with 'spam'. If someone should come across your post, they could send you a private message (PM) by clicking on your name.

As that scenario is rather remote, it would be better for you to be proactive and use the search all members trees (top right under search). If anyone else has the same names listed, then click on the 'find out more' button against the result to send a message both giving and asking for additional information.

Coould you explain your interest in these people please?

As you failed to give any indication of where and when, you list Vanda as born 1937 'West Country'

She was actually Vanda M Marchant and born 1937 in the Bristol Reg district, and married in 1960 to a Mr Campbell. Unless you know otherwise, she could still be living

John G Marchant's birth was registered in the St Georges Hanover Square district in 1931.

Brenda M Marchant was born in 1933 in Bristol reg.

All of these people are potential still alive

Vanda is listed on the 2013 ER living with her husband in Swansea.

There are too many potential marriages for the other 2 siblings to safely identify their whereabouts

Have you tracked down their parents DC? Depending on when it occurred, if the informant was either John or Brenda, it would give you an address to work with

Their marriage
Marriages Mar 1930 (>99%)
Asplin Mary W Marchant St.Thomas 5b 101
Marchant Thomas E Asplin St.Thomas 5b 101

Have you got your father's birth certificate for details of his parents?

Have you got his parents' marriage certificate for details about their fathers, and their birth certificates for more details?

Thank-you

Have you tried researching these people yourself?

That's the fun part...............finding info yourself, as far as possible.

If the ladies named are your aunts, one would have thought that you would know at least something about them..............
