I'm looking for shazea ghafor born in burnley in 1981

Her mother was edith and father abdul.

Possibly moved to new castle at some point.

I believe her to be my half sister. My mother and father split when i was 1 years. I have never had contact with my mother. I've been informed by a source my biological mother died in 2009-2011.

Any help much appreciated.

There is a picture of an Abdul Ghafoor on ancestry says died 2015

Maybe worth contacting the person who posted it

However there seems to be several gents with the same name

Shirley if it's the one I am looking at ? different spelling of first and surname, and that one was born 1981 Blackburn?

yes Nyx and that ties with the 1981 birth


Nyx Report 25 Feb 2018 18:22

what I meant Shirley was that the Shazea Ghafor being looked for was born 1981 Burnley and the Shazia Ghafoor that is on the eroll that I'm looking at ( Blackburn) was also born 1981 but in Blackburn?

EDIT maybe it's me confusing things ....

For ref helpers, have sent OP an obituary for Edith's sister Bernadette 2011 which does confirm Edith pre deceased her

no help really but as I came across it
