My mother was born to a family named Waters in Balcombe, I only know that she had brothers, one named Norman, the family owned a store, they would date from late 1800 to early 1900. My mother was Rosina Mary Waters born in Balcombe approximately 1920, I would appreciate any help in providing any information of the family Waters. Thank you.

Back in early 1977 I worked at Brantridge House, Balcombe of which I have very fond memories. Perhaps someone knows how I can make contact with either Gladys from Corwall, or her daughter, who would now (2011) be about 49. Perhaps someone knows how I can contact them or others who worked there at the time - the Spanish pair for example.
