I am related  to saaida's husband David  Joshua Davies.


I have traced the daughter of  abdullah and saaida's brother yousaf/Joseph.  We met up with her and saaidai's son two weeks ago.

I look forward to any information you can offer. Perhaps I can fill in some gaps for you.

Thank you for your prompt reply. My father was also a son of Sheikh Rahmatullah, his name was
Sheikh Mohammad Salih. My father was quite old when he married my mother, and we new very little about our grandparents. We knew that he went back and forth to the UK, his lifestyle was very much British. We knew that we had relatives in the UK, but the links were lost over time.
Given the terms for this website, I'm not sure how to proceed with contact information. I live in the US.

Hi Sandra, There were six children, the youngest brother and sister (Manon (?) and Aisha) visited us often. Aisha's husband was a lawyer (Barrister at law). My oldest Uncle's childred attended the
Convent school ...Queen Mary in Lahore, we went to Sacred Heart. I have  two sisters and two living brothers. Sadly, my older brother died March 31st, he was an attorney.

Using Google search, enter Shaikh Rahmatullah The English Warehouse Lahore, Pakistan.The ninth photo is the English Warehouse.

We have much to share!

Thank you. There are two stories re his death in the famiy/ He was accidently pushed from a platfom and fell in  front of a train or he jumped.

Is there likely to be a newspaper report.  Would I be able to access that online?  Sandra

Update I understand from his son that he was knocked down on the road by a vehicle.  He is buried in the graveyard of the unitarian church. Lampeter.

I am really very grateful to see these posts and they helped me a lot. Is there anyway that I can get more information about Sheikh Sbs family now.

No I am not of his family. but you might have known that his personality is famous and idealized in various other ways. I am a researcher and I am working on him and I was fortunate enough to get to this forum.
