WW2 RAF Sgt Glyndwr Guerrier, of Croydon,Surrey
« on: Tuesday 19 May 15 10:06 BST (UK) »
Hello,

     At this moment I researching a crew of an 102 Squadron Halifax bomber shotdown 2 February 1943 over Luijksgestel in the Netherlands. Among them 23 year old Flight Engineer Glyndwr Guerrier, who was the son of Ebenezer and Blodwin Guerrier, and Husband of G.E.Muriel Guerrier of Croydon, Surrey. I haven't not much luck to track down his family so hopefully the proffesional people on this forum can??  I know the rules to get in touch with people till alive but if you have additional info please send me a PM.

Thank you very much for your attention,
Adrian

I was about to post the same, KG. Doesn't look as if there were any children, and at the moment I can't see a remarriage or death for his wife. So any living relatives will come from siblings.

A sister was born in 1923 and married in 1943. She died in Holland in 2012. There is only one child born in Wales shown from this marriage on Freebmd, but judging by the surname, her husband could have been Dutch, so there may be more children born in Holland after the war.

Youngest brother married in 1957 Evesham and there are two daughters from that marriage born 1957 and 1960, so probably still living.

Can be found on Freebmd

Hi,

Glyndwr Guerrier was my uncle. I am his late sister Eliuned's eldest son. I was born in Wales. I have visited his grave in Woensel, the Netherlands. Uncle Glyn's brother Andre is still alive and lives in the UK.

What info are you looking for?

Cheers,

Peter
