I am trying to trace my cousin Victor Cheal who originally lived in Cranbrook, Kent, I believe he may have been a BT employee in the 60's.

Welcome to the boards, Ian.

Had a PM from Ian. He thinks Victor was adopted which would make sense.

Unfortunately, there's a death could fit. Have PMed the details.
