LETTER OF THE DAY: Council tax rise? Pity my income hasn’t grown...

Have your say

Helping people locate friends and family they’ve lost touch with

HEDGECOCK: My mother, Mrs Joan Mitchell, used to stay with a lady she only knew as Nana Hedgecock who lived in Porstmouth while waiting for my father Alex Mitchell, who served in the Royal Navy, to return from his draft, this was in 1952.

Nana talked about her son K O Hedgecock who died whilst serving on HMS Illustrious in 1941.

My mother, brother and myself visited Malta and took a photograph of his gravestone in Imtarfa Cemetery, Malta in 2009.

My mother who is now aged 83 would dearly love to know if there are any members of the Hedgecock family still living in Portsmouth. I hope you may be able to assist.

Clark: Are there any descendants of William and Sarah still around in the Portsmouth area?

They had five children, William, Charles, Selina, Francise and Rosina.

The 1871 census had them living at 19 Milton Road, Portsmouth.

My mother would very much like to hear from any descendents.

ANDREWS: I would like to be reunited with my mother, Pamela Joy Andrews, who moved to the Leigh Park area some time ago.
