  1. Hello to you all ! I was wondering if anybody could help me ? Im trying to get a photo of my dads birth mother, as all photos of her were destroyed by my grandad, maybe a relative on her side has one ? Her birth name was Mary Jane Grayson , father Israel Grayson, married Harold Phillips but she died in Sheffield 1943/44 of consumption when my dad was only 9 months old, my grandad Harold Phillips remarried soon after, and all photos of the wedding and Mary Jane were destroyed , my dad didnt find out until relatively late in his life about his birth mum, and i would love to get him a picture of her before he shuffles off this mortal coil ! Dont even know which school she went to, one in Attercliffe i presume as thats where she grew up, I know its a long shot, but you never know ! Thanks for reading

  5. Hi all , trying again to find a photo of my dads birth mother before he shuffles off this mortal coil. His mother was Mary Jane Phillips ( nee Grayson ) , she died of t.b when he was only 11 months old( he was born in 1943 ) , and he didnt find out my late gran wasnt his real mum until he was in his 50s, and as my late grandad destroyed all photos of her, we have no idea of what she looked like ! Any descendants of the Grayson branch who may have a photo, i would love to hear from you , or if you need any more info to check against . Thanks for any help in advance . Lee
