    So many of my Family members moved out of London areas to Essex. This latest one has a tease in that a child is listed with them-blacked out- so I cannot see who it may have been. Another dtr, is with her husband in the house preceding that of the parents in Elgin rd. Ilford.
    I have seen the image but would like to see the text to see if the 2nd child is mentioned. Not easy to find on Free BMD when you have Evans+Martin parents.
    These parents died in 1952 & 1953 respectively Seven Kings Ilford. Both left administration to dtr. mentioned below

    I have noted the younger couple in 1963-64 at Ilford & that's probably when registers stop on Ancestry.

    Is it possible to find people in the Ilford -Dagenham area before 1984?
    The young husband died in 1982 Redbridge, & his wife (nee Evans) in 1983 Dagenham. Both resided in Chadwell Heath, Romford.

    Ancestry have British Phone Books 1880-1984 which might help, but most entries only have initials, so it could be a bit hit and miss.

    I know the area you are looking at very well. I lived in Ilford from the age of 3 months until I got married. I used to walk down Elgin road on numerous occasions as I had a friend who lived in a neighbouring road. After getting married, we lived in Chadwell Heath for 20 years and I passed through Seven Kings every day to and from work :)

    I've googled and there doesn't seem to be electoral registers available for the time frame. I could be wrong though.

    Thank you both, AnnB, you may well have known these people even tho' senior to you. I think phone books would not give names of children, one of whom married in Ilford 1960 & the other possibly in Redbridge 1977.
    I shall just have to wait for contacts to ask for confirmation & Information on the mystery 2nd child of Evans/Martin.
