Trying to find Nixon

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Sandra Report 30 Jan 2003 22:20

I am trying to find out anything about my father Arther Edward Nixon of Kenilworth in Warwickshire. He had one brother called James and a sister called Nancy. We did not have much contact with james and nancy after their mother died in 1962. We used to visit my gran every saturday, she died when I was 11 years old. My father died in 1980.I had not seen him since his mother died until I found him again in 1971, alas I only saw him for about six years and then my mother found out and forbade me to see him a thing I regret very much as I have so much I want to know about his past and his family. I know that he was a prisoner of war in the Changi prison camp. I just need to fill in the gaps. My father had six children and lived in Kenilworth Sandra
