Trying to find Lowe

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Victoria Report 30 Aug 2006 07:41

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to find descendants of my great grandfather Richard Alfred Urwick Lowe and my great grandmother Adelaide Victoria Prosser. Unforfunately, my ggrandfather was believed to have died in the war and when my ggrandmother contracted TB and was hospitalised, all of their children were split up and either went to family or friends. The children never returned to their mother's care. However, I now know that my ggrandfather did not die until 1969, he was then resident at Shelton Hospital Shrewsbury. He had been a patient there from April 1919.

Their children were called:-

Thomas Alfred Lowe 1907
Florence Adelaide Lowe 1909
George Urwick Lowe 1911
Ethel May Lowe 1912
Dorothy Marie Lowe 1914
Richard Henry Lowe 1915 (known as Bob or Dave)
Gertrude Amy Lowe 1916 (known as Amy)
Lilian Elsie Lowe 1918 (known as Elsie)

My grandmother only had contact with Tom, Flo and George.

Would love to be able to contact descendents of all the children.

I am also looking to trace descendants of Edith Mary Lowe born in 1928 who is my gran's half sister. I believe she married a Samuel Wall and lived in the Shard End area of Birmingham.

Update: Have managed to contact descendents of Lilian Elsie, Ethel May and Gertrude Amy Lowe
