Thank you Rosie

I am hunting down former nursing colleagues from when I was a student nurse. So far I have found 80 of them and this one is proving very elusive!  ::) ;) :D

I have edited this to remove the names as I  inadvertently broke group rules  by posting her name!

You have written details of a person who could very well still be alive.

This is against the rules of the forum

My Wife was part of a quartet of friends and she tried for 10 years to find them.

Four years ago she found one, then the second contacted her after she sent speculative messages on Fb to who she though was one of her Daughters and literary two weeks ago they Facetimed each other for the first time.

Friend three may well have died 25 years ago, it is the only trace we have of what might be her.

Friend four, no joy after 10 years searching.

Maybe start up Groups on social media for your training Hospital if you have not done so already.

You have done great finding so many of your colleagues.

Thanks Biggles50.
I have done just that.
We have a facebook group and WhatsApp group too.
I am a very determined person and have even joined workplace, school, town and village groups all over the world in my hunt for firmer colleagues!  ;D
It’s this not being able to simply put in a double barrelled name in the surname search. I just wondered if I was missing a trick.
Obviously if that persons parents weren’t married it might not show up at all. The firmer name of the surname being recorded as a middle name. I have tried that. I am sure I will find her...I never give up...it wouldn’t be a challenge then would it! ;) :D
