Thanks Jan

We don't have any of that information! My Dad was told next to nothing when growing up and the only certificates he has are his dad's death certificate and marriage certificate. We don't even know her name, address or anything so can't do a census search, we are getting a copy of the birth certificate to try and establish some facts. Unfortunately, my father and I are the remaining Hughes, there isn't anyone else that can help us so we're a little stuck at the moment.

Thanks for the help and suggestions

clues? How old was she listed as being at death?
Can you find her on 1901 Census?
Did Arthur have any siblings? Can you gain any clues from their
descendants (if any)? If three marriages, there might be half siblings
on 1901 Census. Can you gain any clues that will lead to them?
Did his mother marry a "cousin" also with surname Hughes?
The actual birth certificate might give further clues.
Births Mar 1914
HUGHES Arthur A Hughes Chesterfield 7b 1581

Good luck!
