    however I was introduced....ie when people meet my Grandma I will say "DH, this is my Grandmother, Hazel" We are a pretty informal lot and that is how we do it.

    So, i would wait to be introduced and follow suit. I think it is rude to introduce someone without saying what to call them.

    I'd say Mrs X if in doubt.

    But surely your DH can tell you what would be best?

    Depends if you're introduced to call her a certain name. If not then I would see if she is casual or more formal.
    Most elderly ladies I know love being called by their first name as it makes them feel more related to, especially by younger people however I have met several elderly people who hold formal speech highly.

    I agree it depends on her reception to you I call my partners nanna nanna but don't call his mum mum as that's weird to me as we don't seem to click or get along! Good luck

    :-/ I never asked my DH family, they get what my DH calls them (mum, dad, nana) except Aunts and Uncles - I go by their first names... But they are fairly relaxed and welcoming and I think they sort of expected that iykwim.

    Whatever they use to introduce her to you.

    If its just Nana I would use Mrs whatever until she corrects you.
