Alice Maud Stephens
« on: Friday 22 September 17 20:18 BST (UK) »
Looking for information on Alice Maud Stephens born 1901 married in 1919 in the Maesteg area. Particularly interested in her maiden as there seems to be some confusion about her mother's name. 
Thanks

Wasn't Stephens her maiden name as that is the name she married under if she is the person who married Benjamin J Martin in 1919

Her birth was registered as Stephens

Carole

I know! I posted from GRO Index as I thought the query was regarding her mother's maiden name?

"Particularly interested in her maiden as there seems to be some confusion about her mother's name".

Hi giggsycat

Sorry about that.  I definitely added mmn as I looked it up on GRO site but it's not there in my reply.  Gremlins I think ;D
