Lesley, I assume she is a member? If so, try checking for matches with these names by using 'search all trees', found in search box above. Hopefully she will have them in her tree.

Could Rosemary Gower, daughter of Douglas Gower, granddaughter of Maurice Gower killed WWII, please contact me. She was in touch with Sharon McEwan from Chesham in Bucks in 2010.

I am researching all the men on Chesham war memorial & would like to exchange information.

Many thanks
