Sadly we haven't found an obituary for Joan who passed away (probably 1990's) a short time before Alex. In reply 60 I speculate that the red markings next to the name of Maurice in 1951 may have been NHS references, so I strongly think that was the case and something may have happened to Maurice in 1951.  Apparently there are lots of references on the 1939 records that we might never know what they refer to.

Received a lovely message from Canada with background info on the Bura family which I will pass to Xinia.  Would like to take the opportunity to thank the lady in Canada for the time she has spent trying to help us out on this one.  Thanks also to RK for the help with obituaries etc.,

I'm sure if anyone finds anything else on Joan or Maurice it will be added here at some stage but for now we have drawn a blank.
