If Jack was her grandfather, you need to know her grandmother's name or which of Jack's children is your mate's wife's parent

Thanks will ask Andy in the morning thanks for your help

My uncle, Harry, moved to Ilkeston at some point. My research shows there is a strong family connection to that area, and I believe Harry might have moved there to be near family. He was married to Elizabeth and they had a son, John who was born in 1949. I’d love to know what happened to John

It’s unlikely that the OP will be expecting a response after 10 years.
Click on his name to send a message via GR, If his e-mail hasn’t been changed, he will be notified, although he isn’t a relative of the people named, as you can see from his posts, so won't have any info.

How much research have you done yourself?

Harry who? Elizabeth who?

Janet -

Do you mean that your uncle Harry is Jack Harrison, who is the subject of this thread?

If not, you'd be better to start a new thread of your own, if you would like our help to research John.
