Susan appears in only the poster's GR tree, so no-one else connected is on here, but how did the poster obtain her permission?

i am now in contact with a very distant relative who is closely related, who is very very happy !! thank you so much everyone this is amazing knowledge and experience on here. (Especially those PM ing thank you - you know who you are !) I can not believe we have to put in so much heartache to track down relations from this lifetime. I will continue next steps.

Just wanted to update everyone but more importantly to thank you so much. Especially Kay, additionally Rose and Shirley. I had bought so many wills, probate, marriage certificates etc and kept missing my bio mum as she moved on or further away, and I was giving up a little. The distant relation couldn't help because she hadn't spoken to bio mum in 40 years so I did despair again. Amazingly !! same weekend I joined genes, and with the help you all gave me. in particular Kay, PM in kept my hopes alive, I found her that week. After writing to her, we have spoken and I have some lovely caring half siblings also so it has been absolutely wonderful. I will try and trace Leonard's life now in case he has children also. I know not everyone has the same experience but I can not thank you all enough. I will try and update success stories in case it may help others. Certainly it did me. Thank you again,

Leonard W Richardson
in the 1939 England and Wales Register
Name: Leonard W Richardson
Gender: Male
Marital Status: Married
Birth Date: 31 Oct 1911
Residence Date: 1939
Address: 48.meadowview Road.
Residence Place: Epsom and Ewell, Surrey, England
Occupation: Clerk- Insurance Co
Line Number: 3

Registration district: 31/5
Inferred Spouse:
Marjorie L Richardson
Household Members Age
Ethel M Cox 26
This record is officially closed.
Leonard W Richardson 28

Marjorie later remarried - so she and Leonard must have divorced.

Marriages Jun 1952 (>99%)
Parker Marjorie L A Tibbles Southend 4a 1435
RICHARDSON Marjorie L A TIBBLES Southend 4a 1435
Tibbles Arthur G E Richardson Southend 4a 1435
Tibbles Arthur G E Parker Southend 4a 1435

I don't think Leonard and Marjorie had children.

There's a 1939 Surrey Mid E birth of a Richardson/Parker child - but NOT a daughter of Leonard and Marjorie , in spite of the fact that Annette was one of Marjorie's middle names.

Births Sep 1939 (>99%)
Richardson Annette M Parker Surrey Mid.E. 2a 503

That child's parents were William and Vera, per the 1939 Register, where her record is open.
There's another Richardson/Parker born in 1948 in Surrey Mid E - but seems likely to be a sibling of the 1939 child.
