Todays Guardian has an interesting article about a detective novelist Clifton Robbins who was born c1890 and who published around nine novels. Attempts are being made to trace his family regarding republication. Any trace?

The trouble with this type of hunt is that readers have access to the same databases and sources as we have and have most probably already located a relative, however distant.

Death record -

Jeanette Marian Wensley
Birth Date - 4 Jul 1917
Date of Registration - Dec 2004
Age at Death - 87
Registration district - Dacorum
Inferred County - Hertfordshire
Register Number - C12
District and Subdistrict - 530/1C
Entry Number - 150

There are three birth of a Robbins/Wensley marriage from 1944 - 1950. These people could still be alive so their names should not be posted. However the person trying to trace Clifton's descendants should have very little trouble. Wonder how hard they tried  :)
