The first question is whether  (*) is still alive?
RootsChat has a "no living persons" policy.

Use FreeBMD to find her birth, which will show Mother's Maiden Name.
Then see if a marriage pops up.

This looks like her parents' marriage:

June qtr 1933
Bromsgrove Registration District     vol 6c, page 594

Bonham, Ralph W
Goodall, Margaret L

You should be able to find them on 1939 National Register (the index is free to search).
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)

Hi There

I just typed John Bonham into google & clicked on the top option which was for Wikipedia which has quite a lot of info on the page including his birth at Redditch & who his parents were - give it a try

All the very best

ps John Bonham is buried at Rushock which is near to Hartlebury Worcestershire

The Led Zeppelin John Bonham was related to my cousin's husband.  His name Keith Bonham.  Are you able to send private messages here?  If so and you message me I can run through the connection...  Oddly enough I remember him and his brother Michael (both since died) when I was much younger, growing up in Redditch.

Hi There

Yes you can send private messages just click on the persons picture & that should take you to a page giving you the option to send a private message.  Im not researching John Bonham but he is a talking point where I spend a lot of my holidays (Hartlebury)

Good luck with your research

All the very best
