    Can anyone let me know how to access these records - I have a great aunt who was on the electoral roll until 1934 and single but she then disappears until her death in 1980.

    Have you tried the 1939 Register? Might take you a little bit further forward.

    Whereabouts was she living? My mum was in the Land Army (she's nearly 90), and is still in contact with younger members of the family/community she spent time with all those years ago. I'm thinking perhaps that if you knew which area she was placed, you might even be able to make enquiries there - perhaps they have a local rag/parish magazine. It's a long shot, I know, but sometimes you strike lucky.
