Looking for information Ellen was my grandma's sister.

Mother Ellen Walsh born 14.07.1900. Poss Died in Luton as Hunter
she married Joseph Hines.
Later moved to London after splitting up from Joseph.

The first 3 children were fostered/adopted.

Eileen was born in Manchester in 1931.
Cyril became Gorton,( now deceased) .
Peter W Hines was born in Manchester in1932.
Agnes M Hines was born in Manchester in 1934 who was also registered as Hunter.
Maureen E Hines who was born in Islington in 1938 who was also regstered as Hunter.

It Would be interesting to find out what happened in theirs and their families lives. :-)

If the elder children were adopted then you won’t be able to find them. If it had been more recent then you could have lodged your details on the Gov adoption register.

Have you accessed the 1939 register to see where the family were living and which surname they were using?

Use the freebmd website to see if you can find marriages or deaths.

FMP shows I've accessed these names previously - there must be another thread

I thought it all sounded very familiar!

The thread posted above and the other one mentioned on it make interesting reading. Lokks to me as though, possibly, the family didn't want to get involved.

As this search has been going on for at least 15 years, it woujld be interesting to know what research Teresa has actually done.

If Ellen died in Luton then there’s a possible marriage for Eileen Mary Hines in 1951 Luton

It’s to a Harold F Smith though which won’t be easy to follow up on

I’ve had a pm from Teresa. I don’t think she necessarily wants hard facts but more like she wants to know how their lives were.
Some family members have been traced and don’t want contact.

Thank you everybody for the information. Much appreciated.
My old post did not cause distress it was inferred by another relative "It Could" so I amended and reworded the post.

My reason for posting this one is because I found some new information but still interested in info on others. I am interested in hard facts as this helps find out about different areas of their lives.
It is not as if I want to meet any of these relatives I am just interested in how their lives panned out especially Eileen, as my grandparents and father spoke highly of her, and if they were ever reunited with each other at some point.
I have recently found out Eileen is still alive aged 91 and living in a nursing home.

Several days after the contributers were thanked I received a pm asking me to delete my post.

I now know which one. Your previous threads looking for the family were started over a number of years. You have now deleted them.

I was not insinuating that you had done no research, I was asking what you had done so that the volunteer researchers would not have to redo your own research.

If you found my post offensive you should have gone through the proper channels.
