Daphne Christine Goy
Person Female Born 12/4/1915 Died 16/9/1979
Our colleague Andrew Behan has kindly researched this woman: She was born Daphne Christine Fletcher on 12 April 1915 in Islington, the daughter of Frederick William Fletcher and Georgina Fletcher née Smith. Her father was a Newsagent. Electoral registers from 1937 show her living with her parents at 169 Junction Road, London, N.19. and the 1939 England and Wales Register confirms that the family was still there, giving her occupation as a Shorthand Typist. In late 1939 she married Reginald Bland Goy and the marriage was registered in the St. Pancras area. They had two children, Richard J. Goy, born 1947 and Madelein J. Goy, born 1949. Electoral registers and telephone directories from 1946 to 1955 showed them living at 11 Highgate Avenue, London, N.6. and from 1956 they show that they had moved to 1A Talbot Road, London, N.6. Her husband died, aged 63 years, on 4 February 1977 and she died two years later, aged 64 years, on 16 September 1979. On 21 September 1979 she was cremated in Islington. Probate was subsequently granted and her estate totalled £78,818.
