Just wondering if anyone has any information about a Malcolm Cain born 1937 in Manchester, England. Married Heidemarie Wilson 1960 Heywood, lancashire. His Parents were Edward Cain and Celia Aldersley from Salford, Manchester. I believe he has a Brother called Rodney born 1943.
I would appreciate any information

Thank you
Nicola Gosse

Welcome to the Boards Gosse

What is it you are trying to find out about him? I see he is in your tree, so must be related


Gosse Report 25 Jun 2013 04:17

I am looking for any information re: is he alive, did he have children etc. Not sure how to find out as it's difficult being in Canada. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you

Possible remarriage for his wife. Too bad, because she has an unusual name and it would be easy to trace him if they had stayed married.

Are they likely to be in Canada also? Not seeing Rodney on electoral registers in the UK.

Who registered Malcolm's mother's death?

Name: CAIN, Celia

Month of registration: April
Date of Birth:2 August 1913
District no: 0031C

The only Rodney Cain birth registered in 1943 has a totally different MMN...........


ErikaH Report 25 Jun 2013 10:10

Do you know about freebmd?

Possible birth(s) on there of child(ren) for Malcolm and his wife


Gosse Report 25 Jun 2013 14:55

Wow, thank you so much for helping me. I'm new at this and not sure how to access info.

Reggie: I did find a son Michael Cain born to a Wilson and Cain 1962 in Heywood which makes me wonder if that could be there son? How did you find children Reggie? I looked on freebmd but only found Michael. I don't know who registered Celia's death.

Rose: Thankyou so much for helping me. How did you find a divorce? I checked last night but nothing showed up on this website. Any help you can give me is very much appreciated. It's taken me a long time to look for Malcolm. All I know about him is that he was a bus driver in Manchester in 1961 and 1962.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!


ErikaH Report 25 Jun 2013 22:02

Why do you think that Rodney is/was Malcolm's brother?

If you look at'll see what I mean

Please be careful about what info you put on here........this site isn't secure.


ErikaH Report 25 Jun 2013 22:03

To find who registered Celia's death you would need to purchase the cert.

Don't forget FreeBMD isn't completely transcribed for 1940 and 1943:

Rodney's birth is listed elsewhere.



Gosse Report 25 Jun 2013 23:21

Thank you both again. I'm getting lot's of information and trying to process everything. Also, have emailed a few people re: their family tree which seems like a possible match.

Are you sure Heidemarie's maiden name was Wilson? Could be she was married before.

Looks like she married a Franklin in 1973 but there's no sign of her after that.



Gosse Report 25 Jun 2013 23:56

Hi Rose,

Yes, I found out that Heidemarie was re-married to a Keith R Franklin in Warwick. Not sure when she divorced Malcolm.



Gosse Report 26 Jun 2013 14:36

I'm not sure either as I couldn't find a divorce. Can you tell me how I locate census information?

thank you Rose,


ErikaH Report 26 Jun 2013 14:58

There is no access to census info after 1911

Sorry, I meant Electoral roles.

Janet Report 9 Aug 2013 20:39

Hi Nicola,
I don't know if you found Malcolm yet,
What I would do if I were you:
Go to the website which has British phone listings,
you will see the various Malcolm Cains, and you will have to pay a fee online, using paypal, in order to buy credits. (I'm in Canada too) Then you will see the names and addresses and phone numbers of all the various Malcolm Cains, and then write them all a letter. That would save you which various wives or children Malcolm might or might not have had. There are only 16 listed, and you can eliminate some of them because sometimes their approximate age is shown. I hope you reach him! Coindicentally, I was born a Cain, so your message caught my eye. (not related to Malcolm)


jax Report 9 Aug 2013 21:13

Welcome to the boards Janet is expensive to buy credits for, there are other places which are cheaper.

Genes now have them included in their platinum subscription so do Find my past.

You will also find that many people have opted out of having their address showing on the ER as well as in the phone book

Also the approx. age is not always correct, so you can ignore that sometimes

Telephone numbers as long as not ex directory can be found at btonline

Would you please remove your email address as it is not allowed if anyone wishes to contact you privately they can click on your name and send a message
