REAL LIFE: ‘We had to make very tough choices’

Have your say

Helping people locate friends and family they’ve lost contact with.

MIKE WEBB: We will be celebrating our Ruby Wedding in January and would dearly love to trace our best man, Mike Webb. All the lads played football for the Queen Alex pub in Mile End and they were called Lamfrank. His father was a butcher at Coopers Butchers in Kingston Road and Mike worked at IBM at the time.

PHILLIP JONES: I am trying to find my cousin Phillip Jones.His mother Audrey Jones lived in Matthews Close, Cosham.

Jo Bowen


EVELYN BARR: I would love to make contact with a lady called Evelyn Barr from Portsmouth. She was living in Curzon Howe Road in Portsea in the 1970s before moving to Southsea. We spoke last in the early 1980s and would love to find her again.

B Howe


ALLEN: I am desperate to locate my son Kevin Robin Allen. He is in his late 50s.

He used to live in Havant but moved to the Portsmouth area about five years ago and was employed by Land Registry for several years.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
