Trying To Trace Anybody Who Knew A Lily Dunkerley.

Recommended Posts

I am currently working on my family tree and wondered if anybody knew a lady called Lily Ellis formerly Dunkerley, who passed away in 1963.

She lived on Channing Street and was married to my great grandfather Frank Ellis, who died in 1951.


I know it's a long shot, but any information would be gratefully received.

Many, many thanks for your response Moirahyde!

I am especially interested in hearing from anyone who knew Lily, as they may be able to provide information re her husband Frank Ellis.
