Im searching for a Norma Fielding born 1939 from the Bury area, and was a part of the pentecostal church there. Last known location is Rhyl where she worked in a chemist as a shop assistant around 1060.


samantha Report 6 Jun 2014 21:59

Should be 1960 !!

Welcome to the boards, Samantha.

There are 3 Norma Fielding's born in Lancashire in 1939, 2 in Oldham district and 1 in Rochdale district.

Any other information known about her?


There are various members with Norma Fielding, 1939, in their trees on here.
Have you tried to contact any of them?


samantha Report 6 Jun 2014 22:27

Thank you,

all we have is Bury. My father Michael John Fielding (now Glyn Williams) was born to her in 1960 at St Asaph, then adopted to a couple in Nant Peris, North Wales. We have just found a half brother of his Stephen Fielding (now Michael Apps) who was also adopted to a couple in Yorkshire in 1957.
Not contacted anybody yet will try now.

In a posting on another site, you list her exact birth date. This is a crucial detail.

If you look on FreeBMD you can identify the birth and see she has a brother.

Look in trees on here. It's possible she is on this site but there are 2 births in Oldham that year

One of the Normas born in Oldham district now lives in Scotland. Will PM some details but there's no way of knowing if it's your Norma.

There is a Norma Fielding in Rhyl age 65+

Looks like a new address for 2014


FAIRTHORN Report 7 Jun 2014 04:02


from the other website

The Information I have seems to suggest, that she herself may have been adopted, to a family in Bury. :-S

Unless Samantha has now bought the POSSIBLE birth certificate to check the DOB


FAIRTHORN Report 7 Jun 2014 04:15

The possible brother there is/was a gentleman of his name that lived in the NEXT flat to the Norma in RHYL



samantha Report 7 Jun 2014 10:16

Yes we have the date of birth April 1939, and last resided at Tre Llywelyn Rd, Rhyl. There was a Chemist on the same street she lived on so could be her old workplace.

We have found out that she herself wasnt adopted but had another son 3 yrs before my father hence mention of "adoption bury" we have recently found him.

Im not really sure how this works to get info of person, and am very appreciative of all your help



jax Report 7 Jun 2014 14:16


Could you please remove her exact date of birth and address

As this lady is probably still alive she may not want all her personal details on the internet

If you think she is living in Rhyl you may need to purchase credits for as there is an entry for her name in 2014 as mentioned by Fairthorn which looks to be different from the address Genes or Find my past has which only go up to 2013


samantha Report 7 Jun 2014 14:25


The address I have no longer exist, but the street is still there. I cant be certain she still in Rhyl as last known address was in 1960.

Sorry x


jax Report 7 Jun 2014 14:36

If you search freebmd you can see she had a younger brother and as pointed out by Fairthorn someone with his name was living next door to a Norma Fielding in Rhyl.....but these address's only went up to 2010 so they may not be correct now


samantha Report 7 Jun 2014 14:41

Im sorry im new to this and cant seem to get anything regarding a brother.


jax Report 7 Jun 2014 14:45

If you go to freebmd

click search

select births

surname ...Fielding

Mothers maiden name....(which you should have)


You should then come up with two names


samantha Report 7 Jun 2014 19:44

ALL this data was sent to Samantha ( BIRTHS ETC & OLD ADDRESSES )
she has read the message.
no acknowledgement etc though.

I feel we have done as much as we can .. UNLESS someone has credits for




samantha Report 8 Jun 2014 20:12

I have done the and paid for a background check on one norma fielding but as its £15 for each one I cant be doing all of them.

All I wanted was some advice as too my next step!

Thanks for all you help xx


jax Report 8 Jun 2014 20:19

Why did you do a background check? you just need the 2014 address and write to it

If it is not her I am sure she will tell you

I have never used so I don't know what they charge...but peopletracer looks to go up to 2014 and is £7.95 for 6 searches (address's)

Also if she is not the one in Rhyl she probably married and would have a different name


FAIRTHORN Report 9 Jun 2014 04:12

Norma has not moved far as she is still in LL18

If you GOOGLE her old address it says on the side of the building
Self contained flats all with sea view

Why not write, if you do not want to spend money ( sure you can afford a Stamp & SAE ) to her OLD address & ask if they know where she moved to, as they most likely have forwarded her mail.

she was at her old address for at least
Occupancy (years) 7
so one of her neighbours will know her.


it is possible she has moved cos of her brother sadly having had to go into care.
