Hi Karen

Well 8 years is quite a time to wait for an answer! I have some information for you - I am god-father to Anne Marie Williams, Jackie Williams (nee Bills) daughter. I have been compiling her family tree for her and stumbled across your message. I have told her about your message and she has asked me to reply. She says she remembers meeting your father long long ago. Her father is deceased (Canada, some while ago) whilst her mother Jackie is back here in the UK, living in Leicester. So you have found a cousin and an Aunt!

Also, by complete co-incidence, I served in the RAF Regiment 1969 - 1976 with another Uncle of yours, David Bills, so that's another Uncle for you! I last saw him at a Regt dinner in Derby about four years ago.

Anyway I hope this message gets to you and if you reply to me in the first instance I will put you in touch with Anne Marie.

By the way your grandfather Trevor was a boxer in Manchester 1930 - 1931 and then served many years in the British Army during the war in Burma, but maybe you know that.

Hello, I am trying to find relatives of my father, named Robert Henry Bills, he was born 1950. His mother came from Wales and was named Katherine Violet Willaims, she passed away in the early 1970's. She was married to my Grandfather Trevor Bills who was born in Manchester. Trevor and Katherine Violet had children named David, Julie, Robert, Christopher and Jackie. I hope someone can help. Thank you
