Many thanks for this. Having read it through it doesn't look good. Assuming an age of 20 for the birth that would give Phyllis a dob of c. 1925 which still means she could be alive. Without a possible married name it would be difficult to trace her death. I suppose I could apply to the Mod telling them of the scenario. I only want the dob and place so there may be extenuating circumstances. That seems to be my only hope. Thanks for the response.

Hi,
Gobowen comes under Oswestry.
There are 9 Phyllis Davies in the list.
There is one in 1923.
Bryn y Castle Terrace is still there, off School lane.
