I donít understand why the grandmother is on the birth certificate and why there is no Christian name

On my FIL birth cert his mother is named at Mary Grundy & her mother Parkin. No father listed.
He was born in 1949, Worksop

I am sorry, I have just called him and confirmed: DOB 1948 my mistake
on his birth cert is just Mary Grundy and he was born in Worksop

The child was born in SQ 1948 Worksop.  Why do you think it is 1949?

My error- he was born 1948.

There is a closed record with Henry and Leah on the 1939.  This usually implies that this person is living.  Is this Mary or someone else?

No, it means that they were born less than 100 years ago.

I've just noticed that Mary has the second initial of P on her birth record.  Do you know what it stands for?

Probably 'PARKIN'?

Nicole, can you explain how you have made the connection between Mary GRUNDY and Mary PARKIN/GOODE born 1922? 

On my FIL birth cert his mother is named at Mary Grundy & her mother Parkin. No father listed.
He was born in 1949, Worksop

Where on the cert do you see Mary's mother named as PARKIN?

Sorry my error only Mary Grundy is on his birth cert.
Connection being very tenuous to Mary Parkin only in that he has a DNA match to H A Goode - Mary Parkins Father and that living opposite the Goodes at Beech Avenue, Notts was William Arthur Grundy and Sarah Alford/Halford. We can only assume that Mary used Grundy on FIL birth cert as a pointer to his father. Unfortunately he father is not listed on his birth cert - would have been useful.

Can you tell us if Mary's second name is Parkin or is it something else?  I wondered if it might help in locating her at all.

I have traced his connection to Goode through DNA (my heritage) to a Doris Ivy Goode (married Elliott) (1930-2016)

I would have thought that simply tells you that your FIL shares DNA with descendants of Doris Ivy GOODE.  What is the connection with Henry Albert?

As an aside, there is something wrong with Henry's family but I am not sure yet what it is.  It's possible that he wasn't a GOODE at all.

Leah GOODE died in 1980 and left a will.  If you get a copy then she may mention her daughter which would in turn help to trace any descendants.  She had quite a good nest egg.

Have you checked the address/es given on the birth certificate on electoral rolls to see if there was a Grundy family living there?

I would definitely try the adoption route again.

William Arthur and Sarah Grundy had a son William Royston Grundy b.27/4/1918 died 1990 Chichester, West Sussex.   Looks like he married in 1940 Nottingham.   So, if you have identified the right Mary, the married man she had an affair with (if indeed she did) would no doubt be this son rather than William Arthur.

When the birth record of Mary was amended in 1928 she has been listed as plain Mary Goode.   A lady with this name married a Mr. Brown in Sept.1956 Nottingham.  Has this line been pursued in case she was the daughter of Henry and Leah?

I've found a death for a Mary Brown died 1992 East Retford, Nottinghamshire

DOB is given as 12 7 1922

Could this have been Mary Goode?
