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?

Annette
William Arthur Grundy is Kathleen Grundy's uncle, her fathers brother.

I will certainly look at this. Yes it very well is possible! Thank you

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?

This seems like a very likely match. I will explore this further. I was so hoping that against all odds that she may still be alive.

She would be a 97 year old woman if she were still alive.

The date of birth is exactly the same as Mary Goode's which is why I gave this information.  Seems as if she stayed in the Nottingham area.

Added: You may wish to consider getting the marriage certificate for that SQ 1956 marriage of Mary Goode to Brown.  You can then check what name appears for Mary's father.

Don't forget to check for baptism and middle names
 my own grandmother had a middle name hinting at birth father on her birth certificate but a different middle name on baptism

Hello, that would be great, thank you for reaching out. I am still searching on behalf of my FIL. There is a DNA connection on My Heritage to O'shea which pointed me after a lot of searching to Goode. The name has come up in searches for my FIL. He is looking both for his biological Mother and Father although we know that would be difficult as there is no father listed on his birth certificate. Nicole

Nicole - Did you get round to ordering the 1956 marriage certificate as per my reply #47?  If so did it tell you anything helpful?
