Grantham Journal letter: I’m looking for my long lost sister

Have your say

My name is Steve Hughes and I live in Wrexham, North Wales.

I am writing because I think I may have a long lost sister living in, or around, Grantham.

My father, Edward Vincent Hughes, was stationed at Long Bennington during the war. He married a lass by the name of Marjorie Lewis Turton at Wesley Chapel, Bridge End Road, West Kesteven on September 18, 1943 when he was 21 or 22 years of age and Marjorie was 22.

Marjorie’s father was William Lewis Turton and I believe they lived at 1 Albion Place, Grantham.

The sad part is that I may have met my sister, if she was my sister, in Bala North Wales where I used to live in the early sixties. I remember my mum ushering us out into the garden so that the adults could talk about something important. That I remember vividly.

I also remember she had a Jack Russell dog by the name of Tiny, but that’s all I’ve got.

Every avenue I go down ends in a dead end, so I was wondering if your good readers could help.

My number is 07835468604 and my address is 7 The Laurels Acton, Wrexham, LL127NW.
