Attached is a picure of Joan and her sons - circa 1967 as well as her parents - Jack and Ivy Nicholls. Would love info from current family members or info about them. Do not want to offend anyone and hope to hear from someone who recognizes these people. They are relatives of my wife's family and we'd love to know more

If there is potential for 'offence', Carl, please tread very carefully............

At least one GR member appears to have IVY in her tree on here.

Find the name...........and send a contact message, but be discreet


ErikaH Report 11 Feb 2013 10:25

It would appear that Joan has/had one sibling - possibly two

Buy her father's death cert.......for details of the informant, who was probably related


Unknown Report 4 Jan 2014 14:14

Hi I am searching for a W.Nicholls and wondered if you have come across him. I keep hitting brick walls as I have little info him.
He was Welsh, nick named Taff / Taffy. Born approx 1918-1925. He was in the forces possibly a Welsh regiment but was base in Warminster,Wiltshire in 1953 where he met my Nan.
I have tried the Glosers site as they were in Warminster during this time too but no joy. He was a cook or worked in the kitchens I believe. In 1955 he was based in Germany and was a Lance Corporall.

Any help gratefully received. Thank you

Carl never returned to this thread, so is unlikely to see your question.

Could you start a totally new thread on this board so that the two requests do not get mixed up?

(Do you have any knowledge of what the W stands for?)
