Looking for an old friend Penelope Sylvester, she used to live in Berrick Salome, Oxfordshire, she may be now living in Worthing

Have you got an approximate birth year, and do you know if she married?
When were you last in contact with her?

Looks like this is her birth name, YOB 1946 - would that be right? If so she is Penelope A.

If I have the right birth these are her parents. She appears to have had a sibling too.
