Nearly all properties in Worcester should show up. Have you tried a search with simply the postcode. Ordinarily it should mention all the houses and flats within that postcode. Assuming the property is recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought back in the 60’s it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The address might still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title documentation which may be with your parent’s lender.
