I wouldn't delete anything at this point - you never know, someone might come looking one day and find your threads!
Best of luck with your research.

Thanks for that. I did wonder about it but I did start out to look for Annie's descendants and luckily I did get Robert's. Should I delete all of this one now and keep the other?

Alison, a tip - never start new threads about the same family as people end up repeating things.
If you feel you must - as things get a bit complicated from time-to-time - then post a link to the original thread.

I have been in contact with Mr Yost by telephone this morning. I am delighted with the results. Many thanks! I will be able to be in contact with the rest of the family through Mr Yost and we will be able to share information on the Spence family tree.
I am still hoping that information of Annie will be found also. :-D
Kind regards
Alison <3

Have you looked to see if anyone has any of this family in their trees on here?

If you get the death certificate for Ann, the information there may help you in your search.

There is at least one Yost/Spence birth - showing on free bmd for 1961 - have you followed it up?

Try that 1961 birth in bt-online Gloucester, for address.

I did try but I have very little information. I am not sure if Ann had children either. i don't live in England and I have struggled to use the phone book online as I was unsure of areas and post codes. I would like to have contact with living relatives of Robert and Edith Spence. It was sad to see that Ann died so young too.I am doing the Spence family tree.

I am looking for descendants of Robert Spence and Edith Rose Gregory, Kent.
I think they had 5 children.
Elizabeth AR 1932
David 1936
Ann V 1938 m Yost
Jean M 1940 m Brooks
Margaret R 1945 m Jones
It would be good to get some information.
