Hi Kristie
Iíve just found this thread on the internet.
Florence was my great grandfathers sister. Iím a decendant of William George Offord born 1895
We donít know much about his father George as we were told that he left Minnie for another woman.
After the marriage breakdown William George was passed to aunts and auncle (not sure which yet).
We donít know much about Florence and what happened to her.
The family has found a lot about our ancestors and we have some pictures you maybe interested in seeing.
It would be wonderful to swop information.

What I can tel you at the moment is that William George married Gladys Louise Redington who was a wonderful woman. I have a few memories of her as a very young child. William passed away in 1975 and Gladys in 1987. They had three girls and a boy, two of whom are still alive and in their last 80s early 90s.  Gwendoline their daughter was my grandmother. She passed away about 15 years ago.

Look forward to hearing from you.
