Have searched all trees etc, sent lots of messages to no avail..I am desperate to find her or any other relatives and open to any suggestions that you guys may have!! :-D

There is no birth for a Violet M Turnbull in the 1920's in free bmd. Are you sure of her name?


Lynski Report 4 Oct 2011 22:10

There is this one?????

Births Sep 1915 (>99%)
Turnbull Violet M Woods Greenwich 1d 1812

The district Greenwich spans the boundaries of the counties of Greater London, Kent and London

Is Turnbull her maiden name or her married name?

There is a Violet M. Edmunds marriage to a William H. Turnbull in 1942 in Brentford.

Could this be her?

All I know is that her name was Violet Maud Turnbull in 1952 and she lived in bexleyheath in Kent. I was just assuming she was born around the 1920's and that would have been her maiden name, but I could be wrong!! argh would really appreciate more help in this matter. Thank you to all who have helped so far though :-D

Violet Maud Turnbull
Birth Date: 1 Mar 1911
Date of Registration: May 2003
Age at Death: 92
Registration district: Neath and Port Talbot
Inferred County: West Glamorgan
Register number: B79D
District and Subdistrict: 896/1B
Entry number: 47

But if she married after the 1950's we are looking for quite a different person. What connection is she to you, to try to find her from a different angle?

Are you looking for her because she had a child? Her maiden name will be on the birth registration.

Is it Lynne? The mmn is Turnbull.



Michelle Report 6 Oct 2011 10:01

Yes maiden name is Turnbull... all the info I have... yes it is Lynne!!


FAIRTHORN Report 6 Oct 2011 10:25

Violet's age & other data maybe in the adoption file
There is only one marriage in England & Wales after 1952 for a Violet M Turnbull


Michelle Report 6 Oct 2011 14:30

There is nothing on the adoption file.. only the hostpital, her address at the time and her name!!


MargaretM Report 6 Oct 2011 14:41

If that's her death registration it gives birthdate as 1 Mar. 1911 so she should show up on the 1911 census which was taken 2 April. I don't have access myself.


Michelle Report 6 Oct 2011 15:11

I cant find her on the 1911 Census...

Turnbull Violet M Henderson Medway 2a 1368


Michelle Report 6 Oct 2011 16:09

I have just looked that one up (Medway) . It could be her (it's pretty close to where I live now)!! How do I find out more about her??? Please feel free to suggest :-)


jax Report 6 Oct 2011 16:24

Think we can scrub that one as this looks like her marriage

Marriages Mar 1935 (>99%)

Turnbull Violet M Belcher Medway 2a 1460



Michelle Report 6 Oct 2011 16:31

So are you saying that I should now be looking for a Violet Belcher??? :-S


jax Report 6 Oct 2011 16:49


All I was saying was the one born 1911 Medway married 1935 I doubt that she is the one you are looking for.

There is a Violet marrying in 1953 in London that could be her perhaps??


Michelle Report 6 Oct 2011 16:56

oh no got my hopes up then :(
Not sure what to do next... :-S


Penny Report 6 Oct 2011 17:23

I dont think anyone will be able to identify her ''just like that''. Facts/suggestions might be made, some of which might take time to follow up, research before deciding right or wrong person.


Penny Report 6 Oct 2011 17:24

OK, putting it bluntly - are you Lynne?
Or are you search FOR Lynne( on her behalf)
Or are you Looking for Lynne ( looking to find her)

You said just now

''I have just looked that one up (Medway) .'' What did you look up and where did you look it up?
