Does anyone remember the Cochran family, Frankie , Kathleen and children Kath, Michael Colin and I think there was another girl Terecia. I would love to make contact with them they were my auntie and uncle and cousins. Thank you for reading this.
I can remember celebrating the Coronation with a party, the streets were decorated with flags, it was a memorable day and photographs were taken, which I still have. I can name nearly everyone, friends and neighbours.

My mother can name all her neighbours who lived in the street when she was growing up. Times have changed and you don't get to know your neighbours as we did.
I'm trying to find out about the Davies/Watkins families that use to live down School Street during WW1 until WW2; if anybody knows of any info or stories about them or remembers them, I'd love to know.
