Hello Dennis,

If she did marry I suppose on average it could be around 1960 or thereabouts. If she was still overseas it may have been announced in the UK newspaper of the particular area they had ties to, maybe even in the London Times. If the parents died after her likely marriage date their newspaper death notices may have the daughters married name and location although this is less likely with big city papers unless there’s a full obit. If you know the exact date and place of their deaths and can get to somewhere that has archive copies it may be worth a try. Even the English death certificates but you would have to be lucky enough for the daughter to be the informant. Maybe even their wills. I have copies of some English wills from the 1970s that were sent to me by a distant relative and they were equally distant from the deceased. I’m not sure where they got them from.
