red mail Burrows Family
I am trying to trace any present day descendants of Edwin Edgar BURROWS. Edwin died at the Somme and is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial. He was Married to Ellen BURROWS (nee BLEAKLEY) and the couples children on the 1911 census are James age 8 b1903, Ellen age 7 b1904, Francis age 6 b1905, Charles age 4 b1907, Matilda age 2 b 1909. A further daughter Gladys was born in 1915. Descendants of Edwin have left commemorations to him on a British Legion website, but that doesn't allow contacts. If this registers with you, I would like to hear from you.

I am seeking information relating to a Thomas Slater born between 1930 and 1933. I assume around the Middlesex area. He frequented Acton, West London during 1948 - 1950, and knew the Walker family (Builders and Decorators?) of 1 Mansell Road, Acton, West London. Any information will be received gratefully.
I am seeking information on the the following people so that I may add to my family map. Ellen (Burrows) and George Walker, 1 Mansell Road, Acton, West London circa 1940-1972? Possible builders and decorators. David J Walker DoB 1942 Willesden married Jean Banham. Barbara A Walker DoB 1940 Brentford married Peter Jackson. Margerate E Walker DoB 1937 married Anthony Bayne. George C Walker DoB 1934 married Daphne Ward. I believe the above is accurate, however I could be wrong. Some of it is based on logical conclusions, from dates, and places. Anyone reading this thank you for your time and indulgence.
