Hi everyone - hopefully I have listed this request on the appropriate thread????

I am trying to trace some information for my dear old great aunt? It she had an aunt who committed suicide sometime in 1950/60's? It appears there was some form of family break-up?

Due to the family break-up all contact with her aunty (prior to her suicide) was lost. At the wonderful age of 88 my great aunt now wants to find out the date of death of her aunty and whether she married her long term man friend?

Her name was Florence May Tustin born 14th August 1899 (?) and her man friend was Harold Matthews (no other information)

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Marriage registered a Florence M Tustin & a Harold Matthews, Meriden Mar qtr 1938.

Death registered for a Florence N Matthews, Bham Dec qtr 1946. Middle initial is wrong so not sure but seems to be the only one of the right age. You might have to order the death certificate to get the exact date.
