My husbands mother died recently and we are unable to find a birth certificate. Where do you suggest we start? Her birthdate was 24th December 1919. She was born in Norfolk - place unknown, possibly around North Walsham - we suspect she was born of an unmarried mother. I am unable to find her in the births for that period.

Reason: missed it out
what was her name, please. I will have a look for you if you like.
That was her maiden name, yes? Alcock?
that was on her marriage certificate
Do you happen to know her mothers maiden name? I presume you believe it was Alcock if you think her mother was unmarried?
Was there a fathers name on the marriage cert? If so what was it?
The fathers name was blank - she was a very secretive woman. She had a sister Lily but that doesn't mean it was her first name!
Did a 5 year search around 1919 in Norfolk
The only Alcocks with mother Alcock born in that time frame were
Sep qtr 1919 Peggy V Alcock
Reg dis Mitford 4b 341
Doris M Alcock Dec qtr 1919
Freebridge Lynn 4b 449
I suppose Doris could be Doreen, Names were always changed around. I wonder if the M was for Miriam
Was Lily older or younger?
Is her name Miriam Doreen formerly Alcock on your husbands birth cert?
Could Minnie be short for Mildred, I have found a Mildred D Allcock mother's maiden name Allcock, born 1920 Jan/Feb/March, Walsingham Norfolk, vol 4b pg 578. It is Allcock not Alcock.
