If she died after 1969 then her date of birth should be on her death maybe you should get her birth cert

There is someone called Jan who also has her in her/his tree, are you in contact?

I have just found said Jan and have sent her/him a message. I did try to search the 1911 when I clicked on it, it just brought up a page telling me what I would find on the page. Oh bring back the old site I know my way round it a bit better. Thanks all
