Go to :-
There seem to be six siblings of Violet.
Now go to "search trees" on Genes and other geneology sites,enter the names and try and make contact with people.
Violet is on one tree here.

Thanks for your help. I was trying to trace Violet's family. I used to walk to school with her every day. She was knocked down by a car on 23rd December 1953' the car failed to stop. The family had moved away prior to her death and I just wondered what became of them.
