We are still working on this and are making excellent progress into to finding close living relatives of Patricia. The tree now contains just short of 500 people!!

Will post a more detailed update towards the end of the week - fingers crossed the evidence arrives.

I have spent the last few hours reading all posts and I would like to congratulate all concerned for putting young Patricias family together.Well Done.

I have been following this thread for a few weeks now (have been on holiday so has taken a while to catch up !!) and think it is fantastic that so much information has been found about 1 little girl and her family.

Well done to everyone involved, cant wait for the next instalment.

Keep up the good work everyone

Just thought I would enquire as to how the search is going.

We haven't had an update for a while.

I just had a look at the webpage, what a wonderful job everyone did in finding out all the details.

I followed the story from start to finish, reading it bit by bit and to see it all on the website is just Fantastic to see and read the full story.

Everyone did such a great job, well done all of you!!

Havent had time to read everything - but if you are still searching for William's demise - what about the Star and Garter. he may have been wounded badly and spent many years in a home which might account for Henrietta not marrying until 1962. Alternatively here is a thought. The man Henrietta was living with might have been married before, and he might have been waiting for his first wife to die. This happened in my family. My grandparents didnt marry until they were in their 60's because my grandfather's previous wife was still alive and he never divorced her. Just a thought!!

Hi All,
Recently I posted a letter which I hope will result in a reply via the stamp addressed envelope enclosed. To date there has been no reply but I remain hopeful that something may be forthcoming within the next few weeks. By that time it would be a month since posting.

So hopefully on receipt of a reply or in a fortnights time I should be in a position to write the conclusion to this tale.

May thanks to all who have contributed in help, support, time and finance in bringing this story to life.
Quite a team effort.

Bye for now

Paul I still wish we could get someone like the local scout group to tidy up that grave


Paul Report 26 Feb 2008 22:12

Hello Claire,
I'll contact St John The Baptist church hopefully this weekend and see if they have any idea's about adopting the grave. As you say perhaps the local Scout or Guide Group would be willing.


Lorraine Report 20 Aug 2008 15:26

Am I missing something as nothing seems to have been written on this for a while, must admit have not been on here for a while!!

It would be great to hear of a conclusion

Hi, Just been reading through the whole of 'A Sad Little Tale' part 1 and 2 and wondered if any of you know if there was a conclusion to this lovely, heartwarming story? Nicky
