Cheltenham c1975
« on: Thursday 30 August 18 18:44 BST (UK) »
Does anyone recognise the name and address within this postcard, it appears to have been sent to my grandmother (of Liverpool) but unsure of the writer's hand!

My grandmother died in 1979, when I was 5 years old.

Been curious ever since this came into my possession.

The writing is clear enough.
Whacking in the postcode confirms a match. Try Electoral rolls?

Margaret Williams may not be a relation.

Auntie Minnett seems to be writing to "Ann" first to say thank you for a present and secondly to pass on a long waited address.  Margaret could just be a friend that Auntie had the address for, and Ann had asked for, and Auntie has finally got round to passing on to her.

On the 1939 Register there are just 7 Minette's (first name) with various spellings living in Gloucestershire.  Two of them are living in Cheltenham.

Have you researched your grandmother's family to see if there are any Minette's there?
