PM sent with possible details.


Paul Report 9 Mar 2013 18:57

That is correct she was 16, with right father.



brummiejan Report 9 Mar 2013 18:47

Hang on! How old was she on the cert? The marriage you have took place 1955, do she couldn't have been above 16 if your Patricia.


brummiejan Report 9 Mar 2013 18:45

Well, as long as you are sure the details are right for her father. I wonder why no middle initial is shown on the indexes.
The marriage I found is in Birmingham 1959. But if you think she is using her maiden name I suppose that is what you need to pursue.
Good luck!


Paul Report 9 Mar 2013 18:37

Hi Jan

Yes have the wedding cert.



brummiejan Report 9 Mar 2013 18:34

By the way, the marriage I found is not to Gerald Taylor. The Patricia Funnell Gerald married does not appear to have a middle name.
Do you know for a fact she married this person?


brummiejan Report 9 Mar 2013 18:29

Well, you could try as the name is pretty unusual.
There is a P.A. Funnell on, living in Leicester though! But as it is free you might as well give it a go.
ADDED and an A. Funnell Tamworth also.

Thank you Jan I have her birth cert .Yes I do know she married Gerald William Taylor , but i believe she is now using her maiden name.

Would like to find her current location ,which I think is still Tamworth.



brummiejan Report 9 Mar 2013 17:57

There is a birth recorded 1st quarter 1940 in Sutton - is this her?
Assuming this is her maiden name, there is a possible marriage in Birmingham - are you aware of this?

Looking for info on my step sister Patricia Ann Funnell in the Tamworth area b 1939 .
Thank you
