Paulo I am not sure who the 29 June 1920 person is.  There is a Doreen Fawcett with that birthdate who later married a Taylor, but she is not your person.  Maybe others are finding someone who eludes me.

Can you tell us more about exactly what info you are looking for, and what you already know?

Is “your” Doreen definitely deceased?

Excellent  :)

Blackpool sounds good as her younger brother Robert Hamlet Taylor was born in Fylde in 1923 (died 1993).

OK, so Doreen seems to have died as Mrs Doreen Farrington in Poulton-le-Fylde in 2011 aged 91.

It looks as though she didn’t marry Mr Farrington until 1970 (in Blackpool) - see FreeBMD.
