Many thanks to the programme and a response for tree owner Peter Gatward, I have successfully found Peter as the first cousin of my father in law, Herbert Charles Gatward, born Bristol 1922. Many thanks to Peter's response. My father in law has always basically thought he was the last of this line, except for ourselves and our son James (b1987) Sometimes these searches are not so much about backwards, but sideways and forward.
Good luck and thanks
Gloria Gatward
