I am hoping to find living relatives of my grandmothers sister emily J Spurrier, she lived in Islington, Middlesex, england. She married a gentlman called Arthur g Roach in 1924. Hope someone can shed some light for me. Sharon

looks like they had 4 children, so Guess there should (or would have been) descendants
[all born between 1925 & 1939)
George W, Eileen. Vera M. & Margaret E E

so next tack would be to look for their marriages and their children I guess

Looks like you are the only one with Emily, but possibly others have her husband or children?
