In 1945 Frederick H and Edith Mabel Thomas were living at 1 Kearsley Road, Reading.

In 1950 Frederick Harold, Edith Mabel and Hazel Thomas were living at 77 Kenilworth Avenue, Reading.

F H Thomas is in the 1942 phone book at 1 Kearsley Road
1955 electoral register has - still at 77 Kenilworth Avenue - Edith Mabel Thomas, Frederick Harold Thomas (juror), and another Thomas, I believe the younger of the two daughters born in Eastbourne (she was S for service voter)
That younger Thomas was still listed there in 1956 (still as a Service voter), but no Frederick or Edith.

Thank you jonw65, where did you find the 1955/56 results? I can't find them?

Hi
I was going through them myself year by year. Ancestry haven't indexed every year, they should have done 1955 though?
Anyway, if you find them in 1950, and then when you get the image, click on 1950 on the screen you get a drop down list of years.
Or, alternatively, use "browse this collection", select Reading and scroll down to 1955 (Wards in Reading constituency)
They are on image 240 of 244

And for 1956, that address is found on image 239 of 242.

So, sometime around 1955 we have lost them. I think the eldest daughter - if she married a Smith - may later be in Windsor.

Superb research jonw65 who'd have thought they'd have gone to Scotland?

It's often the last place we think of! Perhaps because they were both from the south of England.
But very happy to find them!

Perhaps they had relations there or had holidayed there before?
