Hi. I'm trying to find information on my nans family. My nan is kathleen dunn born I think 1935 her parents were frederick moore and violet dunn.
My nan married a douglas wyatt born around 1935?

Do some research yourself to start with. That's the whole point of family history.

Look for info on freebmd

If the name at birth was Dunn, her father wasn't Moore


Caris Report 17 Nov 2019 14:03

Sorry no her name was kathleen adkins at birth


ErikaH Report 17 Nov 2019 14:04

There is no record of a marriage between Douglas Wyatt and Kathleen Dunn

Were these people born/married in England/Wales?

Which of their children is your parent?


ErikaH Report 17 Nov 2019 14:06


You do need to sort out your facts - looking for info is the best way to do that


ErikaH Report 17 Nov 2019 14:07

To give you a kickstart

Marriages Mar 1954 (>99%)
Adkins Kathleen E Wyatt Pancras 5d 962
WYATT Douglas M ADKINS Pancras 5d 962

Now - look for their births

Learn how to use these free sites - - bmd from start of registration in Q3 1837 through to approx. 1983. Mother's maiden name for births shows only from Q3 1912 onwards and age at death from mid 1860's

and (this one you have to register but is then free to use).
Shows mmn from start of registration until 1918 (100 year closure) and deaths with ages or year of birth from 1837 - 1957 and 1987 - 2019

If mmn is blank you can usually infer an illegitimate birth

for ref only Caris' late mother Loraine is on freebmd bn 1958 Harlow ( Epping reg as per the file Caris sent to me in 2015 the mmn there is given as ATKINS.

appears to have had a sister Christine born 2 years previously? also ATKINS


ErikaH Report 17 Nov 2019 15:00

Probable younger sister on freebmd with correct MMN.

Thank you

If you buy a copy of the 1954 marriage cert, you will fnd out the name of Douglas's father. I doubt you'll get any info about Kathleen's father, so you'll need a copy of her birth cert to find out her mother's forename(s)
