According to various sources she was born in either 1920, 1922 or 1923. We can definitely rule out the latter as her sister Moyra Fraser was born then. I checked the birth index and could find no Shelagh M. Fraser, but did find a Sheila M. Fraser, registered in the Croydon district in the first quarter of 1921. The mother's maiden name is listed as Beardshaw. According to several obits her father was John Newton Mappin Fraser. I found a marriage record from 1916 which shows a marriage of a John N. M. Fraser to a Beardshaw. So it looks like she was born Sheila M. Fraser in 1920. Crisso (talk) 02:50, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
