Welcome to the boards Matthew. It's unlikely that they or anyone who knows them will just happen by your message.

Go to the Search facility top right of this page, enter the names one by one with a year and then +/- 5 or 10 years. There are a number of Peters with those first names born in the general London area, you may be able to pick up the family link through the areas they were born.

You can then try sending a message to the tree holder by clicking on "find out more"

Then hope to get a reply. The people will still have to have the email address they registered with GR, still be a member, still be interested, still be able to reply etc etc etc

Also check on If you can link the family through mmn it will give you birth years for certain which will make a search easier.

Do you know parents names including Mothers maiden name, can you be more accurate with birth years and areas?

Looks to be the family on the 1939 register

Sanders (Peters) Household (4 People)
Badric Road , Battersea, London, England

Dorothy L Sanders (Peters) 15 Sep 1909 Female Paper Sorter Heavy Worker Married 69 1
Doris Beard (Peters) 10 Sep 1929 Female At School Single 69 2
Sorry, this record is officially closed. Check if you can open a closed record.
Kenneth F Peters 04 Oct 1937 Male Under School Age Single 69 4

Dorothy remarried and became Sanders - change noted 5.10.1949 - this would be when the change was made not necessarily to date of the marriage

Doris married a Beard - again change of name - noted 19.12.49. As her name is open on the register then her death will have been picked up.

Kenneth an open record so his death has been picked up

The closed record will probably be the second child born and whose death has not yet been picked up. The last child to be born was 1940 so will not be on the register.

Charles may already be in the forces - if he was of an age with Dorothy.
