I have my doubts!!

Having got some way with my family my father in law asked if I would do his. Not too much of a problem you may think except he didn't even know his own mothers maiden name!!!Luckily both parents had fairly uncommon first names, (Hephzibah & Louis) I have found their marriage in Hastings in 1914 which gave me her surname but still have no idea where she came from,online searches and requests at local register office and indexes at local records office have been unfruitful, He cant remember more than the first names of siblings no birth/death dates, and requests to other members of the family have been seemingly ignored.(He is 90 by the way so I not expecting much help,I have to deal with comments like "There was an aunt Ginny....but I dont know where she fits in" and "There was granny Harris who lived along by the Downs dont know if she was related or who too"Any suggestions where i can look next, before I pull all my hair out.:rolleyes:
HELP PLease!
