Since Celia was your chief bridesmaid I'm guessing that you knew her quite well. You probably know the names of her parents, siblings and possibly her boyfriend if she had one. You may also know which schools she attended, where she worked and addresses that she lived at.

Might I suggest that you might take a look at Friends Reunited, a site associated to Genes Reunited.

Whilst GR is a site for trying to trace your ancestors and relatives, FR on the other hand is geared to finding old friends, workmates and neighbours ect.

Membership of FR is free and you can use criteria such as name, school details, address details and workplaces to search the site to see if the person you seek is also a site member.

The site address is: http://www.friendsreunited.co.uk

Good luck.

You might be able to find her on Facebook.

You could also look in "Search All Trees" to see if there are any connections.

Good luck!
