This forum has been of great help until now, but I am still looking for more families. I am still looking for 3 more.

In my previous topic we have been looking for sergeant W.R. Louth, and we did! Thanks for that!
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=794284.0

I am still looking for:
 
LEON HANNAM, Son of Leon and Margaret Cecil Emma Hannam, of Islington, London. Service Number 1383305 and date of death is 01/05/1943.

We have been able to find two nephews, but they do not respond to my messages for some reason.

I hope that we'll be able to find relatives!

For those who don't know what this is about, here is a link to the website of the monument we are building! https://davevancoolwijk.wixsite.com/halifaxmonument

Regards,

David

Just a suggestion but would it not be better to post as separate requests on the 3 boards covering their birth counties (ie) Norfolk, Lanarkshire and London & Middlesex

It could get quite messy dealing with 3 different families on one post

Leon was born 1920 and had 3 siblings born between 1922-1924.  I think John born 1922 died as an infant

Harry - born 1924 died 2009 Harlow Essex

A niece and the sister of Leon Hannam have found me!

So no need to search for them any further.

I have received photos and I am awaiting more information as we speak!
