Beverley Report 20 Feb 2005 14:05

I am looking for information regarding Robert Victor Horne, born in 1920. He lived in Hornchurch, Essex when he married Beatrice Bickerstaff in 1946. Robert is my husbands father and he didn;t ever get to meet him. He left the family home when Beatrice (Babs) was 6 months pregnant with him. We know very little about Robert and would be grateful if you have any information to contact me via this site. Robert's parents were John Charles Horne and Norah Devenish. they married in 1911 in West Ham. they had a daughter Elsie EN also born in 1911. Thank you Beverley
