Hi again :),

Looking on the ancestry site a bit more it looks as though Phyllis Bignell born 1918 passed away in 2001, there are a couple of photos of her on the site Phyllis Lee, Nee Bignell.

George Bignell born 1912 if its the correct one passed away in 1968 and there is a possibility that Wainess J Bignell born 1916 may have been known as John W Bignell born 1916 passed away 1955.

Nan and Grandad and my mum traveled through Essex and Kent up until 1955.
Can anybody help find more information about my family. And links etc. my daughter has carried the family name Genty Johnson to this day who is now 20 years old.
Your help will be much appreciated. Looking forward to your results.
Also my mums brothers and sisters where called;

Welcome to Rootschat David.

There is a Genty MILLEN death registration Maidstone district March quarter 1985 which gives a date of birth as 16 March 1912 ........... would this be her?

Do you know if your grandmother had any brothers/sisters?

Casalguidi :)
