Looking For My Geordie Family

A Memory of Backworth

Hello, I am trying to trace my grandmother's family, name Hanley. 13 children, lived Backworth, Newsham, Blyth, Tyne and Wear. All names I know are Alice, Lily, Lizzie, Derek, Ethel, Hannah & my gran Sussanah. She married my grandad who was from Newport S Wales, where I live. Sussanah would have been born early 1900. My dad is 73 so I would love to find his geordie family for him. Be great if any one knew anything. Thank you, Jayne Williams
