I HAVE been researching my family history and I am trying to locate a relative who might have a photograph of an Elsie Llewellyn born in 1902 in Cardiff, South Wales.
You might be thinking why I am making this request to the people of Dewsbury. Well in 1934 Elsie was married in Cardiff to a Reginald Westbury and Reginald was born in Dewsbury in 1910. Both Reginald and Elsie died in the seaside town of Bridlington and I can find no record of children.
Reginald was the son of Edward and Gertrude (nee Smith) Westbury and there was also a daughter named Gertrude Ivy, born in Dewsbury 1908. It is Gertrude’s children, Doreen and Trevor and their children who might have a photo of Reginald and Elsie. Doreen married a George Sheard and had four children, Richard, Rodney, Jeremy and Paul. Trevor married a Thwaite and had two children, Helen and David.
I have no idea if any members of the family are still living in Dewsbury or the surrounding area but if they recognise any of the names I would be most grateful if they can write to me at the following address with any information.
