Looking for any living relatives of Elizabeth Stemp born in 1898 Whitchurch she had a twin Henry father and mother were Walter and Emily sadly Emily died giving
birth the babies were looked after by their maternal grandmother Caroline Wiltshire they had 2 sisters Emily Jane and Annie and a brother Jack when Elizabeth and Henry were 4 they were split as their grandmother died . Henry was my granddad
he married in 1920 and had 12 children but they never knew any of their fathers
family . It would be great to trace any living relatives.
