You need to give some years of birth etc

We can’t identify the family without more info and where they fit in the family

Parents names and any census details you already know if they are that far back

Believe this is the marriage you seek:

Marriages Mar 1940 (>99%)
Joyce Arthur D Winskill Pancras 1b 333
Winskill Gladys L Joyce Pancras 1b 333

Use FreeBMD to find the children.

All children born in the area but looks like some of them married in Thanet District.

thanks everyone, have asked my cousin and here's the additional information:

David Arthur Joyce born 1939-1942 approx
sisters Margaret and Eileen, Janet
brothers John (killed in Ramsgate) Bobby, Geoff (Jeff) Jimmy, Archie

but think there may be another, have put dates or birth circa 1940 onwards as we don;t know any thing about them, believe most reside in Ramsgate

My uncle passed away and we are not sure if the family know. Nothing is known of Dave's mother or father only that Dave was in borstal for a short tinme in his teens but rarely spoke about his family.

Once again, thank you for all your help, you've all been great xx

just for a ref point,

Births Mar 1943 (>99%)
Joyce Eileen G Winskill Islington

You can see the other children on as Rose says, Jeffrey is with a J all have middle intitials which should help in tracing them.
