Hi Gina,

Welcome to FHUK.

You dont say what records you have looked at! The first port of call would be the marriage index, if no luck there then the death index. What date did Lydia die in 1945 that would give you a starting point.
Also try looking under different spellings eg philips etc and look at the bottom of the index as well as sometimes there are handwritten entries.

Hi i should have said ive checked spellings, bmd records cannot find marriage or death i am no longer joined to ancestry as my year came to an end and i thought i would digest what i found out first then re join her mum lydia died 1st april 1950 not 1945 like i said before me getting mixed up she was only young if she died before 1955 Gina

Hi Gina,

I did have a look on the marriage and death index. There is a death for an Ada B Philiips June 1/4 district Edmonton, but her age is given as 46 could this be an error?

Hi Carol,

Sorry to leave the year out doh. It was 1952 its a few years out but it could be an error.

You could go through the local registrars office not sure if they are the same price as ordering through the GRO or a little bit more, and if its not the right one I think they will refund the money but you can always get in touch and ask.

Hi plot thickens 1911 census shows ada beatrice living aged 4 born before marriage so death would be correct for her but i have found another ada b phillips with mothers maiden name nevard as she was born some twenty years later she could be the first ada b daughter named after herself as no mother would name two living girls the same would she ?? how odd but i still cant get any info on the youngest one of course she may have never married and could be alive still ?? i am only guessing i willhave to apply for both birth certs and the death cert to be sure Gina
