I'd very much like to contact MAUREEN JENNIFER PEARSON (nee CROSS), possibly of Blackburn, or either of her 2 daughters, SUSAN and WENDY. Maureen's mother was CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH CROSS (later WILSON), whose 2nd husband, WILFRED WILSON, was my great-grandfather; a blind WW1 veteran who died in 1971. Out 2 families have never met, and we'd love to know more about Wilfred. Many thanks, Paul J Clare.
