I have been trying to find them for a long time Paul was born in Grays in Eseex. Our family including my mum who is 86 would love to know how they are.

When did you last have contact?

You have included Paul in your GR tree - how did you manage to obtain his permission?

Is Paul an only child?

The woman who died in 2010 had been at the address since at least 2002

A seemingly-unrelated male at the same address in 2002-3
