Looking for relatives of Hazel Gwendoline cullum , married to Arthur Henry cullum.


greyghost Report 15 Jun 2022 17:34

Welcome to the boards Nicola.

You need to give more information if you want help.

Otherwise look under Search above right, enter names and see if anyone has them in their tree. You can then try contacting that person.

It's unlikely that anyone who knows them will just happen by your thread on here.

When did they marry, where did they marry? Presume her name wasn't callum pre marriage?

What research have you done yourself, what more do you know already to save helpers duplicating.

The marriage is easy to find on the free to use site - put it in your favourites and have a go at using it

Surname First name(s) Spouse District Vol Page
Marriages Sep 1955 (>99%)
CULLUM Arthur H FRY Surrey S.W. 5g 2208
FRY Hazel G CULLUM Surrey S.W. 5g 2208

Then you can use the same site to look for any children they might have had - there are 2 births both in Surrey SW - too recent to post here for privacy sake.

The eldest may have married 1982 in Sussex,

The youngest - other births same sort of era so may or may not be, may have married 1982/ or 1983

You'll need to use a commercial site for marriages/ births later than c 1983 which is freebmd's limit

Then try ER's,, btphonebookonline, facebook etc

Her late sister is in a GR tree

If that is the case she needs to come back and explain what she is actually looking for.

The person who registered Margaret’s death may be a relative. The cert will have his/her details

She MAY be in a couple of GR trees - one of which is ‘owned’ by someone who posts on these boards quite often. Try making contact

I don’t want to tread on anybodies toes ,, ski haven’t to be careful what I post . My father was a mr Gordon a p Kinge , thanks once again nici


ArgyllGran Report 20 Jun 2022 20:26

No help with your mother, I'm afraid.

In case you don't know -

your father was born 6 May 1922 in Hampshire.
His parents were either Arthur George Kinge and Julia E Newman, who married in Basingstoke in 1914, or Charles H Kinge and Bessie L Newman who married in Basingstoke in 1920. Arthur and Charles were brothers, and Julia and Bessie were sisters.

He married in Hampshire in 1974, and died in Portsmouth in 1989.

His wife MAY have remarried in 1989, in the same quarter as your father's death.

Just for info even if hazel husband had left her she was still legally a Cullum so that’s the correct way to register your birth as Cullum

Am assuming she didn’t name a father on the cert though
