I found an old war love letter and I was interested to know what happened to them...if they ever got married. Not family or anything

Adresses are diffucult to search for via the internet.

Do you mean WW1 or WW2?

I have a subscription to the Uk Ancestry site, so could help out. Or the National Archives online site is worth trying.

No spaces etc.

I won't be able to do much atm as ds is off school with an ear infection and we are away for half term adn I haven't even started geting ready (bad timing for you unfortunately!!)

But I'm sure others will be able to help out sooner.

search the GRO and see if they got married
look in the electoral registers for 1939 and 1946/7 to see if the address gives her name then (dont forget the er wern't collected in the war years - and you had to be over 21 to be listed to vote until the late 1960's)

search the gro for a birth giving his name and her maiden name - this will give you any decendents.
