Thank you all for your responses. I will go through them all shortly. In answer to your questions. Yes, she is going to do a DNA test. Such a sad story. Her mother gave her up for adoption at birth (privately), never revealing the father's name. When she was finally found, she wouldn't have anything to do with her daughter and is now deceased. The only clue to her father's identity has been an aunt who said his name was Arthur, a soldier and he lived in the same road, Grayham Rd. So we are really clutching at straws. My friend is elderly now and would love to know her origins before it is too late. Thanks again.

Having had another look at what you have found out, it looks as if Arthur Lacey is not the right man. The aunt described him as "a nice lad". He probably didn't even know about the pregnancy. Hopefully the DNA test will shed some light. Thanks again for your endeavours - it always was a long shot.

Regardless of her sad start I hope she had a good life after. 🙂
