Hello, do you remember any of the Hatfield and Hatfull families from Barking? (one and the same due to my grandfather changing his name from Hatfull in 1918) Alfred was my grandfather, Alice (born Snell) was my nan and their three boys were Jack, (born 1918) Joe and Jim (born 1924) and they lived in Jackson Road.
