There is always that possibility and that she is still alive! I think maybe a trip to the library and a look at electoral roles might be in order.

Will fill my friend in with an update tomorrow and see what she wants to do next.

Thanks for taking the time to help once again as I'm pretty sure you have helped me before! :-)

No problem Marc - the pleasure is all mine.

Good luck with your search.

Well that's the death certificate's ordered! Just need to wait on them arriving now.

I have now also found out that Robert and Alice divorced then Alice remarried Robert Crawford Robertson in 1953 in the district of Haddington, East Lothian.

So a quick search on Scotland's People to see if Elizabeth had married under the name Robertson but no result there either! No death record under Robertson either!

So still nothing on Elizabeth! Which is what I'm really looking for, so if anyone can help shed a bit more light on her it would be very much appreciated! :-D

Interesting that your friend has a document with Robert and Alice at the same address in 1959. They seem to have divorced in 1953?

My apology rg I should have been more clear about the document. The document is regarding Elizabeth being at the same address in 1959. After finding out about the divorce it is now unclear who was actually living at the address.
I can only assume for the moment that Elizabeth was still living there possibly with her mother and step father. More research on that is now required.

No problem Marc. Just more for you to unravel. At least you know her Mum's second married name now.

Light finally shed!

Elizabeth(Betty) did move away to England/Wales. She did marry, we believe a welshman by the name of Dawkins??? More information still to be found or should I say given!

Unfortunately we have also dicovered Betty has passed away :(

But on the positive side. I have managed to help unravel a missing part of a friends life, find living relatives and she has now made contact with them!!

:-D :-D :-D
