Sylvia Jean Frost 1933
« on: Tuesday 06 April 21 21:21 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can see who is listed as Sylvia's parents.
Would be listed as born in Exeter or Tiverton .
My nan told us that Sylvia was her 1st child but she wasn't married and the father took off so her parents and aunties basically raised Sylvia..
She passed away in 1989 and although I know her childrens names I haven't been able to track them down to ask questions.

The 1939 register shows Sylvia living with Clara Frost in Tiverton.
Clara Frost is listed as a widow.
No others in the household.

Thanks for that  . That makes perfect sense , Clare or Clara was my great grandads 2nd wife after his 1st wife ( my nans mum ) passed away in 1911.
My Great Grandad died in 1938 so she would have been left looking after his grand daughter..

Have you tried putting an appeal on Facebook etc for Sylvia's son?  His wife has an unusual first name, may be foreign born?

I did find them listed on the 192 website but the date was the early 2000s.

Birth certificates from the GRO for that period of time cost 11.00.  This is her birth registration from the GRO

FROST, SYLVIA  JEAN     - 
GRO Reference: 1933  S Quarter in EXETER  Volume 05B  Page 92

The little dash means that she was illegitimate so the surname is the same.

If you haven't used the GRO before you will need to register first.

https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/

Click on Order Certificates Online and then register.  When you have done that you can then go to the Search the GRO Online Index section, on the right hand side.  Click on the birth section then fill in the name etc, put in Exeter for District of Birth and then click on the little white button to the left of her name.  You can then go through the order process.

The GRO is the best way of ordering certificates.  There are other websites through which you can order certificates but they are much more expensive.  If you get stuck do ask for help.  :)
