Liverpool Gladys Vasey

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Carrie Report 2 Apr 2024 19:47

I'm hoping to find Gladys, born 1928 - does anyone in Liverpool know her xxx

It is very unlikely that anyone with any knowledge of Gladys would spot your post.

At almost 100 it is quite probable that she has died.

Try looking at search/ search all members trees. If this is her married name then you would need to enter her maiden name.

Use freebmd to check her birth and marriage.

PM sent asking poster to return. Opened yesterday


Carrie Report 21 Apr 2024 22:18

Thank you to all for your replies, unfortunately they weren't the relative that I was hoping to find ??


ArgyllGran Report 22 Apr 2024 08:18

Can you give us more clues about her?
You must know more about her than you've told us, if you are able to say that the woman above definitely isn't the right one.

Anything at all might help!

You mention Liverpool.
Do you mean she was born there, or just lived there?
If she lived there, when was that?

Are you sure of her year of birth?


ArgyllGran Report 22 Apr 2024 08:45

If Vasey was her maiden name, the only other Gladys Vasey possibly born in 1928 (although not in Liverpool) was this one, born either at the end of 1928 or early 1929:

Births Mar 1929 (>99%)
Vasey Gladys [mmn Young ] Whitby 9d 691

Marriage of parents:

Marriages Mar 1911 (>99%)

ArgyllGran Report 22 Apr 2024 09:18

In 1951 (and 1952) Gladys was still at 53a Cliff Street, with her mother and siblings Thomas, Edith, Eric, Richard and Ralph.

Gladys Vasey

Name Gladys Vasey
Residence Date 1951

Residence Place Whitby (Town Ward), North Riding, England
Parliamentary Division Whitby Constituency
Description Register of Electors 1951-Scarborough and Whitby Constituency-County of York, North Riding

ArgyllGran Report 22 Apr 2024 09:26

Her death was registered in Musselburgh, near Edinburgh:

VASEY [ also listed as FAIRNIE ]
760 / 289

Her marriage:

689 / 7
Inveresk and Musselburgh

However, from the dates that we have, it doesn't look as if she ever lived in Liverpool, unless maybe at some point between 1939 and 1951.

Gladys's obituary:

Her husband Francis died in 1969.


ArgyllGran Report 22 Apr 2024 12:37

Leaving that Gladys aside -

just pottering around here , looking for any Gladys Vasey's in Liverpool, while awaiting more detail from Carrie -

In 1949 and 1950 a Gladys Vasey lived at 98 Bedford Street South, along with a Harry Vasey.

In 1952, a Gladys Vasey lived at 14 Woodbine Grove, and she was still at that address in 1956. . No other Vaseys with her.
