Phyllis Burston goes to Canada in 1930 via Salvation Army. Mother is May,(something crossed out) Mrs Burston, Pillers Green, Gorse near Gloucester.

I think that should be Pillow's Green, Corse.  Can you post a snip of the 'something crossed out'?

Yes, I think it is Pillows Green, Corse (which was why I did a link to that on a map), but that was how it was written on the document.

Sorry, sometimes I have selective blindness.  8)

Hello there

Other than sorting out who is whose father, as per my last post, no.

Still looking for a death for Reginald, and also trying to find out what happened to Roland after he left for Australia.
