"Just to clarify a few things: The 1939 register was updated until 1991 so any changes or additions to a person's entry in the register including new surnames could have been added at any time during that 52 year period. The electoral rolls show…"

"In 1939 Maureen was at the All Saints convent in St Albans, Hertfordshire, and later register updates show her married surname as well as the surname HAMABOURE (sic) so I think this confirms that Beatrice was connected closely to her.  Beatrice…"

"Aaron,  It is possible that Millicents birth was registered under another surname - I doubt that Joyce & John PETTIT were married by the sounds of it Discrepancies in ages in immigration records are very common - I would only use an…"

"Debra - Thanks so much for finding that information. I've been using Findmypast for my searches but apparently it doesn't include electoral lists so I wondered how you found the information on Millicent and Beatrice so when I went on to…"

"Aaron,  Many thanks for the update - this is becoming Pandoras box !!!! I can imagine how your Mother felt finding out about Joyce being her grandmother - it seems that if Joyce hadn't died then she would have brought her up instead of…"

"Marriages Dec 1933 JOSÈ,  Beatrice T RUFFELL,  John A Lambeth 1d 606 I think that John Alfred RUFFELL and Annie CHATHAM were Maureen's parents.  So what on earth was Millicent doing living with Beatrice if John Alfred…"

"I recognised the surname RUFFELL from my previous searches. Millicent was at 32 Westmoreland Terrace in 1945 with a Beatrice RUFFELL at the same address.  In 1949 she was Beatrice HARAMBOUR(E) at 53 Sussex Street with probable partner Etienne…"

"I just read that back and realised Maureen would have been 24 when Joyce died so obviously wouldn't have been placed in the children's home. I'm guessing they just stayed friends as Joyce was my mother's Grandmother and…"

"I think that redacted entry would be for the younger daughter of Alice WYATT (nee WALLIS) and is an unrelated family.   Looking at later electoral rolls and the number of different people enrolled at that address I would say it was used as…"

"Thanks for these links, I'll look into them this afternoon. On my mother's birth certificate Millicent was a single woman, her maiden name was PETTIT, and the registration district was City of Westminster. I'll be interested to see if…"

"You can ask the SA State Library for a transcription of Millicent's death notice.  You know that she died on 9 April 1999 so it would be a quick lookup for them to find the notice.  They generally do an hour of free research for…"
