My mothers maiden name was Watts and she was born in London 6/10/1905.
She had a brother, Jimmy Watts who lived at 47 Tower Hamlets in Dover. I have cousins living in Dover and it would be nice to get in touch.  I know and there were more that I didn't know. Does anyone out there have any clues that would help.
Many Thanks.

Hello Diane,
You request info on the Snells of Cardiff. I knew quite a few Snells through my association with the Salvation Army. There was an Albert Snell who lived in Canton. He had 2 sons. One Clifford died a few years ago and his other son Malcolm is a S.A. officer. Then there was a brother of Albert, I've forgot his name who had a daughter Kathleen. Hope this is a small help.
