This is a repost from last year I am desperately trying to find a family that lived in canning town west ham or east ham in the early eighties near to west hams football ground.The mum was called sheila she was a relative of my mums second husband and she had four daughters debbie and lynn were the eldest and allison and melissa the two I knew the best were about my age the girls would all be in their early to mid forties now(they would remember me as spencer baker)I know its a long shot I'm just hoping the names might jog someones memory unfortuanetly none of my relatives can remember their surnames so I haven't got much to go on but there can't be many families in london in the eighties with four daughters who had those names sorry I haven't got any more information any help greatly appreciated many thanks.

If you can remember their address you can go to Canning Town Library and look at old electoral rolls to get the surname.
