Please someone help me? My mother, carol delyth vagg (Phillips) was born in 1947, her mother was Cassandra violet Phillips (casseldon or den) she was born in shepherds bush, putney. This is as far as I have got! My mum says that her nan could have been a boniface, but not sure. My nan, Cassandra was 1 of a lot of children that went to homes around the country, my nan ended up at the wilmslow community home styal, in Manchester, this is all we know.... Please help me complete this for my mum

Hi Shane,
I assume this is your mother's birth registration

Births Sep 1947

Phillips Carol D Casselden Merioneth N. 8c 16

Birth registration of your nan - her mother's maiden name Boniface seems to be correct.

Births Mar 1913
Casselden Cassandra V Boniface Fulham

1a 317

Some of the other children of this couple

Births Dec 1911
Casselden Rose Boniface Christchurch 2b 1174

Surname First name(s) Mother District Vol Page
Births Mar 1913
Casselden Cassandra V Boniface Fulham 1a 317

Births Mar 1914
CASSELDEN Beatrice Boniface Manchester 8d 454

Births Jun 1915
Casselden Martha L Boniface Manchester 8d 381

Births Mar 1919
Casselden Eliza R Boniface Manchester 8d 240

so there seems to have been a move to Manchester.

The only Marriage registration between Boniface & Casselden I can find

Marriages Sep 1897
Boniface Eliza Rose Brighton 2b 490
Casselden William Frederick Brighton 2b 490

They should appear in the 1901 & 1911 census which are pay per view.

You could start by ordering some of the above certificates from the GRO
