    The only Helen Wilkinson born in 1945 (in North East) was in the summer :
    Name: Helen Wilkinson
    Mother's Maiden Surname: Scott
    Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1945
    Registration district: Gateshead
    Inferred County: Durham
    Volume Number: 10a
    Page Number: 1202

    but there is one born in 1944 in the North East that fits the bill
    Name: Helen Wilkinson
    Mother's Maiden Surname: Baitey
    Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1944
    Registration district: Tynemouth
    Inferred County: Cumberland, Northumberland, Westmorland
    Volume Number: 10b
    Page Number: 334

    But you say she was Jan 1945 - so effectively its neither of the above - confusing, I guess if you know her mothers maiden name it will differentiate which one

  4. Her father's name was Donald Wilkinson
  5. Tricky Dicky

    That doesn't help define which Helen we are looking for - it is her mothers maiden name that will tell you which trail to follow - if in fact it is either of them

  6. Tricky Dicky

    What further information do you have on him, middle initial, date/place of birth, mothers maiden name etc etc ???

    Headstone pictures of Ernest John Hollands parents grave arrived today. Unfortunately no dates of birth, no marker for Ellen's death in '67.

    It reads "In loving memory of Ernest Holland beloved husband of Ellen Holland, who fell asleep May 23, 1934, age 51 years. A token of love from his wife & son".

    This at least confirms Ernest John was the only child.
    Tricky Dicky and Guy Hudson like this.
