Looking for relatives of
« on: Tuesday 30 April 19 10:16 BST (UK) »
Dear all,

I am looking for relatives of John Kenneth Mansley from Atherton Lancashire.

I have been searching for almost a year now, without any result. I mostly posted requests in local facebook groups but nobody seems to know the family.

I am looking for relatives for the Lancaster ED706 Memorial Almere  in the Netherlands where for the first time a memorial service was held at the monument of the crash on May 1st 1943.

All crew members on board were killed and we want their story to be told!

I have been able to locate the other 6 relatives of the crew, but not the relatives of Sgt. Mansley.

Is there anyone here who can help me find out?

Here's a link to our website: http://lancastered706memorial.nl/

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,

David van Coolwijk

Hi

His parents married in Ormskirk and John K was born there.  His mothers maiden name was Simpson and John had a sister born in 1927 in Atherton who married there in 1948

There appears to have been one son born 1955 whose details cannot be given here but I will send you a pm

Have also found a business address for the son
