Births Jun 1923 (>99%)

Williams Gloria M Holland Barnstaple 5b 707

Marriages Jun 1943 (>99%)

Wright John D S Williams Surrey N.E. 2a 95

You are speculating about a possible second marriage for Gloria - in her MAIDEN name - without saying whether you have done anything about finding out what happened to John Wright............

Possibly Sandra has not discovered page 2, and so has not read your births and marriages and comments?


Flick Report 5 Aug 2011 20:07

That's a distinct possibility, taking previous postings into account...........

Unknown Report 25 Sep 2011 19:59

i think they are still alive and married but i cannot find them x :-(


Flick Report 25 Sep 2011 22:02

Either, or both, of them may have died after the time for which on line records are available

If alive, they may not wish to be 'found'

They may not have remained in the UK........

You really need to get their marriage cert, and get some facts about John Wright

You haven't given ANY idea of when anyone last had contact with this couple.................


Flick Report 26 Sep 2011 14:49

Some facts.............copied from PM

hi flick
i have the marrige cert
john dennis stanley wright / gloria may williams
they married in east sheen surrey in 1943 at all saints church east sheen ( surrey ).
johns grandad father and father were on the cert both names william george wright. His address was 6 lewin road, east sheen
she was 19 and he was twenty.
i know my dad told me that she ran away from home to marry john as she was under age to marry without her parents consent. i remember my dad telling me he was at war when this happened.
All my dad did was talk to me about his sister and how much he loved her and missed her.
She was born in braunton north devon on the 28th may 1923 her father was alfred williams and her mum florence margaret ann and there address when she was born was sunnyside,south street, braunton. my little sister was even named gloria may after her. i just want to find out what happened to her for my father who sadly passed away in 2005
best wishes sandra

There is one result on 192 for Gloria M Wright, age 65+


Unknown Report 26 Sep 2011 15:00

Unknown Report 26 Sep 2011 15:01

whats 192?


Flick Report 26 Sep 2011 15:03

There is no birth in England/Wales for the man she married.............

If he was from another country, perhaps that's where they went............

There is an entry for John Dennis Wirght on the immigration records on sub doesn't cover those.


Unknown Report 26 Sep 2011 15:07
