red mail Frosts
Thanks to the help of a kind member here I have found Alice Frost and most of her family. I am looking for Alice's mother now - Kate, born 1845, a dressmaker, possibly born in Brighton who married James Frost before 1866. She died between 1872 and 1881. Also Alice's older sister, Louisa, born 1866, not married before 1891, a cook. Any help gratefully received!

Looking for any information on my grandfather's family ,some of whom lived in Brighton.My grandfather was Herbert Thomas Saunders born 1876 London,son of William Saunders?,boot maker.Herbert's wife was called Ada Whittle .He was a boot maker who had a shop in Cowper street,Hove.HE also lived in Arthur Street and in the Preston area at different times. I know that he could have had either a brother or cousin, who was living in Arthur street in the 1930's because my father(who was also called Herbert) lived there before he married.
