My uncle, Henry 'Buller' Ward

I am trying to make contact with my uncle Henry 'Buller' Ward. I was adopted nearly 56 years ago and never met my father, Ronnie. I would so very much love to meet my uncle and any other relatives. Please help me if you can. I have tried all the ways I can think of. My original name was Lauraine. Many thanks.

Have you a rough date and place of birth for him?
(Or where were you born?)

This man?
Henry Ward An East End gangster, Henry "Buller" Ward paid a painful price for allying himself with another East End villain called Tony Maffia. Ward was slashed by Reggie Kray after getting into an argument with the brothers in the 60s. He was taken outside the Grave Maurice pub opposite Whitechapel hospital and attacked - and he still bears the scars today.

Through his publishers?

Hello - yes, that is him. I have already made contact with the publisher but he has not been able to get a message to him. I was born in Bedford. Any other ideas? Thank you for replying
