Sandra Luckman (26/04/2005 19:37:02) | Update Message | Delete Message BROOKS GWENDOLINE BROOKS. I am trying to find out any information about Gwendoline, unsure if this is her maiden or married name. I believe she was well educated, and employed at the time. She had association with Mabel Bower SADDINGTON (born Birmingham 4.10.1985 died 21.03.1974) Mabel was Godmother to my father (John Anthony JELBERT, also known as Tony SADDINGTON born Bristol 7.04.1929 died 2.05.1994) Mabel took care of my father in Birmingham until c1940, she then went to Liverpool to become Matron of The Legion of Mary Hostel at Blundell Sands. At this time she ceased contact with my father. Gwendoline BROOKS then wrote a number of letters to the children's home where my father was, asking after his welfare and referring to Mabel, also stating my father was named in her will. I am desperate to find the connection between these ladies and my father. Thanks in an anticipation Any help will be appreciated
