Downes Family

A Memory of Attleborough

Does anyone recall any of the Downes family who lived in Dodds Road? My grandad was Tommy Downes and his siblings were Isabel (Bella), Flo, Olive, Syd, Maud, Jim and Kate (possibly others). My great-grandparents were Albert and Rebecca Downes (nee Wells). I think Albert may have worked at the cider factory (Gaymers?) but I don't have much info on them at all so if anyone does recall them please contact me on

Thank you.
