    Question Lillian Hawson, Doncaster

    Hello,

    I am searching for the birth records of a Lillian Hawson, who married an Alfred Haddow in the early 1940s, possibly 1941/2. Family tell me she grew up in Doncaster, not sure if she was born there however.

    I have been told that she died in 1980/81, at 65 or 66 years old.

    Despite knowing this information, finding a birth record has been difficult.

    Any help would be appreciated

    They married in the Jul quarter of 1941 in the registration district of Surrey North Eastern - Volume 2A Page 57.

    There are a couple of potential deaths that meet the criteria you have listed:

    Birkenhead 1st quarter 1983 Volume 37 Page 0816 - birth date: 21 March 1914
    Kingston upon Thames 1st quarter 1985 Volume 13 Page 2395 - birth date 8 Nov 1918

    A Lilian E E Hawson was born in West Ham in April quarter 1914 Vol 4a Page 520
    A Lilian Hawson was in Mansfield in Dec quarter in 1918 Vol 7B Page 118

    So unfortunately either of these would fit, but the most likely is the Mansfield birth as that is not that far from Doncaster. However, the only way to be sure would be to acquire the marriage certificate, which will give her father's name, and then to acquire the birth certificate and see if they are the same.

    Based on electoral rolls, the second death seems the more likely.

    Lilian is on the 1939 register, a housemaid, born 8th Nov 1918. She was in Epsom, Surrey.

    The Lilian Hawson birth registered Mansfield Dec qrt 1918, which Megan has posted above would probably be the right one

    The birth reg has MMN as Gaffney

    This marriage looks promising
