Trying to find some information on a Sylvia Shickell formerly Taylor, who lived in Essex or wider London area. Daughter of Wiliam Edward Taylor and Sophie Levy.

Born ca 1932 and married 1952. If anybody has any ideas or a useful link that would be fantastic.

have you tried looking on Friends Reunited?

Have you searched the trees on here?
