Nellie MURCOTT b.1900 in Long Eaton
« on: Wednesday 01 November 17 07:50 GMT (UK) »
Nellie was born 9 May 1900 to William and Elizabeth. She married Edwin CROSS in 1922 in Tamworth Staffordshire. They had two children together, Norman William b.1923 and Ernest Raymond b.1925. Soon after Ernest was born, Nellie left her family and Ernest was left with his Aunt Emma in Edingale, Norman staying with his father.
I have searched for Nellie's whereabouts for over twenty years but have not been able to find her. If anyone can help I'd be most thankful.
Thanks,
Colin

Have you tried to find her on the 1939 National Register?
(Only available on FindMyPast)

Other than that, have you tried looking for marriage and/or death? Try FreeBMD.

Because of privacy considerations, that's probably the only things you can look up.
There will also be Electoral Rolls, but you need to know where she was?!

Thanks. Have searched the 1939 register for both CROSS and MURCOTT names but not come up with anything. I keep revisiting the BMD's to see whether she has been added but not for the past twenty years anyway. I'm now assuming she may have remarried and changed her name but I've also looked for deaths of "Nellie" born 9 May 1900 and come up with several possibilities but after following them up they all turn out to not be my Nellie.
Perhaps she emigrated under a different name, there are some family members that did around the same time that she disappeared, but I've not found her yet.
I guess I was clutching at straws and seeing if anyone else may be looking at her for their ancestry.
Thanks again for replying.
