Joan is the daughter of George and Bertha (maiden name?). Joan was born approximately 1945 in the Sunderland area. Her siblings are George and Anne. Grandparents Robert and Ada (nee Ironside). Paternal uncles, Alex, Albert (Albi), Robert and John.

Maureen Turnbull (now Farmer), Robert Turnbull's daughter, is hoping to trace Joan for possible contact.

Can anyone help?

Thanks to your help, we think we might be onto something. We have found Joan and Stuart Hedges, of the right age, living in Shipley, West Yorks. Our only problem now is, we don't have a full address to write to - does anyone think they have the connection? Our fingers are tightly crossed!
