Thank you. I am trying to find a Dorothy Jacques born approx 1924. She was possibly born in Gloucestershire x


ZZzzz Report 24 Sep 2019 20:57

Hope you don’t mind Ramling but I’ve found this on 1939 register
Harold G Jacques.
Lily K Jacques. Nee Franklin.
2 names are blanked out because they are probably alive..
Albert W Jacques is on it.

I hope this helps.

Dorothy has passed away 6 or 7 years ago. The story is that she was put in a convent and didn't come out till she was 18. Though these are her parents she didn't know she had a family till she came out. Thats why I'm wondering where she was. Thank you ZZzzz

Is there a convent in that area at the time, you may be able to search the local library or records office for them, also she may have been placed there with her mother’s maiden name.

Someone who died so recently will still be redacted. My mother who died 2005 is still redacted but as it will soon have been her 100th birthday her entry will soon be visible.

She was one of 11 by looks of it.

My mum grew up in an orphanage she was born 1923 and I sent her birth, marriage and death certificates to get it opened.

Thank you everyone. She was one of 14 Rose lol. Its strange how Albert is on it and he only passed away 2 years ago. Oh well it looks like where she was will have to remain a mystery as she can't be found anywhere or she is one of the names blanked out. Thank you anyway. Love how everyone on here tries to help x
