My Mother was born in Luton Bedfordshire England. 02/06/1929. My mother has now died 23/11/2011. My mother married a S.African man who she later divorced after seperation. My mother returned home to England with 3 children on her British Passport. in 1957. It is complicated and family history is painful. My mother went through another marriage and that also failed but she married and lived happily after those unhappy relationships. My sister remained in England finnishing her Schooling in Falmouth and worked in Penryn but was unhappy and wanted to return to her S.African fathers family which she did in 1972 i think. She has remained there since and had very little contact with her british family in England. She returned to England on 2 occassions but returned back to S.Africa. She has now returned on June 2014 and i as her elder brother am trying to find out how to get confirmation of her British Citizenship. Her Visa Expires on December 6th 2014. She does not now want to return to S.Africa and i am trying to fill in a Form UKM as Mother was British. Do not have Mothers Passport showing us 3 children but i do have my Mothers Birth certificate and her last 2 British Passports. Have been told that if i can submit my Sisters UKM application she can remain in England but if i can get proof of her British Citizenship i can cancel UKM and apply for her British Passport. My sister is now 60 years old and i am 62.
My Mother was married to a S.African and my sister was his daughter.
