re: disappearance of Frederick Vincent Cowderoy c. 1926, I have now come across a Henry Percival Cowderoy, his younger brother who at one point referred to himself only as Henry Percival, omitting the Cowderoy. I am wondering if this offers any clue to my grandfather's disappearance. Has anyone come across a Frederick Vincent PERCIVAL? who would probably have remained in the Forest Gate area as there were strong family connections there. Also does anyone have any information on Henry Percival Cowderoy who died at about the age of 90. I would be very grateful for any information,
red mail Disappearance of Frederick Vincent Cowderoy
I am trying to re-establish contact with the person who contacted me several months ago about the above. I sent them back some requested information but never heard back. I have now been sent some Cowderoy military photos and was hoping this person might be able to identify them. I would, in any case, be very grateful to know if they traced any records for my grandfather which might lead to any clue about his disappearance in approx. 1926. Many thanks Ann

red mail Bird Family, Forest Gate
In 1901 my grandmother, Alice Jane Mimms, gave birth to a daughter called Alice Cecilia. Two years later, she gave birth to another daughter. Shortly afterwards the father deserted the family and the mother was left penniless. She could not feed both of her children and Alice Cecilia was 'given away'. I know that this daughter later married William Bird of Forest Gate in 1923. I would love to know if this marriage bore fruit and whether Alice Cecilia's descendants can tell me anything about her.
