Martin Report 26 Jan 2003 18:33

My wife is looking for anyone with the surname CHRISS.Her mother's maiden name was Lydia White who married Eric Henry CHRISS in Bushbury Wolverhampton in 1944. Tragically Lydia was found dead in the canal opposite Jones Road Wolverhampton in May 1954 after apparently commiting suicide. Eric's father was Joseph Chriss b.1896 in Wolverhampton and he married Ann(Nancy)Price b.1893. Any info. would be gratefully recieved.
