Her sister married a JONES , :-S

The direct quote is -

She lived in Lyme Regis Before moving to Hasting and as far as I am aware she had no children.


Although we'd all like to help Maurice, we do need some clarification!

I'm confused!
Poster asks if Shirley is still living in Hastings- implying that where he las knew her to be.
THEN says last known in Lyme Regis!

The only Bruce Syrett death I can see was in Portsmouth, 2006


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 28 Sep 2013 22:53

from Maurice's PM - the previous address was in Lyme Regis.

Acording to Zoopla, the property was last sold in 2010.
If we can't identify the correct Shirley, it might be worth writing to the current occupiers and see if they know her where-abouts.

The Shirley M who married a Syrett in Hastings in 1976, did not marry a Bruce.

The Shirley M who married a Bruce Syrett was in 1987 Windsor and Maidenhead.

PM from Maurice - as far as he is aware, she didn't have any children.
MIght Bruce have had some from a previous marriage?

I've asked him to reply on the thread.

Are you sure of your facts as to which Shirley married Bruce and is living in Hastings?

Could you say how you are related to her?



+++DetEcTive+++ Report 28 Sep 2013 17:34

She first appeared at the St Leonards address in 2004. Does your contact address date from then?

There are 3 other male Syretts at the address off and on since then

Shirley was married to Bruce who passed away a few years ago



Alemap Report 28 Sep 2013 17:07

There is a lady with that name on in St Leonards on Sea.
