I don't think the person mentioned in electoral roll info is your missing Alice as there is a marriage in Liverpool 1957 that could apply :-\

I have trawled through the marriages and couldn't see one in Liverpool. I have either missed it or ruled it out in my head. I will look again to see if it's possibly her.
Thanks for your help.
Regards,
Dave

I think the marriage sgf28 refers to is for someone becoming Alice Tunney by marrying Mr Tunney.

Missing aunty
« Reply #12 on: Tuesday 11 September 18 20:16 BST (UK) »
Good evening.
Im looking for some advice.
A few years ago I was on here looking for an aunty I assumed must have passed away. She was born in 1920 in Liverpool so in fact its possible she is still alive.
She was last heard of in Southport about 1955 attached/married to a man whose name I have only just identified.
Problem is neither her nor him seem to be on marriages or deaths. Possible they didn't get married and haven't died.
Are there any directories similar to the Kellys/Gores for Liverpool that cover the Southport area.
Where in Southport could I see the electoral rolls assuming there are none on line?

If they died after 2007 their death registrations would not necessarily be available online although some are

You could look on this website for probate from 2008 to date in case either left a will or Letters of Administration were granted

Electoral rolls from 2002 are available online on a number of sites - use Google to search

I think Southport electoral rolls and directories are held at at the Local History archive at Crosby Library.

Crosby library does indeed hold Southport's electoral rolls however they are not indexed so a road name is required. There are also some 1950/60s directories both in Crosby and Southport libraries. If you pm the names to me I will have a look at both libraries however I'm not at Crosby until a week on Friday. Southport within the next few days.

Thanks all for your responses.
My aunt's name is Alice Tunney.  She may have married or taken the name of her partner. Bill / William Povey.
I am well aware that they may have split up or left the area or both post 1955 but any information would be appreciated.
Regards,
David Lee
