Trying to find Tanner

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Melinda Report 29 Oct 2006 01:27

I am trying to find my grandmother, JANE TANNER, born 1896. She married Wilfred Kell in Durham and had four children: Wilfred, Evelyn, James and Frederick (my dad), but she died in 1927 aged only 31. The only thing my dad knew about her was that she was Irish. I have traced the Kells back quite a way now, but I know nothing about poor Jane. She is buried in Blackhill Cemetery, Consett, County Durham.
