Lowry Street, Shieldfield And Cyril Vervaet - a Memory of Shieldfield.

My mother, Margaret (Peggy) GRAY lived with her family at 7 Lowry Street from 1923 to 1942 when she went to Manchester and met my father during the war. Her mother was Lizzie Gray, father Jimmy Gray and siblings Rosie, Jimmy, Frankie, Mollie, Ina, Jack and Tom. The remaining family moved to Coppice Way in the 50's.

Am also looking for the daughters of Cyril Vervaet, nieces of Alf who married my Aunty Mollie. We have letters and photos from your grandparents that were left with Alf's effects and wish to return them to you but have no idea of your married surnames. Alf lived at 23 Rede Street in Battlefield.
