I had look on Findmypast . The only marriage it came up with was:
First name(s) HUGH C
Last name WALTON
Marriage quarter 2
Marriage year 1982
Registration month -
MarriageFinder HUGH C WALTON married MARGARET P WORTHINGTON
Spouse's last name WORTHINGTON
There was only one possible child came up between 1982 and 1990.
First name(s) REBECCA LESLEY C
Last name WALTON
Birth year 1984
Birth quarter 4walton
Registration month 12
Mother's last name WORTHINGTON
The only birth for a Hugh C is in 1912 in China. There are number of Hughs
across the country. With Margaret there were no Margaret P but several
Margarets. I wonder if this was a late or second wedding or that Margaret
was much younger. Rebecca may be a co-incidence
One Rebecca L was married in 2003 and one in 2004. Findmypast only goes up

Can anyone help search for an obituary for my long lost 2nd cousin?
Hugh Cecil WALTON d. 29 Oct 1999,
his wife: Margaret Pat WALTON d. 31 Oct 1990.
Both deaths registered in Med Devon District.
They are buried in Crediton Cemetery, Mid Devon District, Devon, England and
a grave marker photo is found at Find A Grave.
My goal is to locate their children/grandchildren and share some family
history with them.
Thank you very much!
