Looking for my parents
« on: May 02, 2011, 10:04:01 PM »
Hi everyone, Please help if you can, I am looking for my mother, she was living at 83 shrofflod road c1961, Her name was Vera Joan Kelly.
She may be married now, I have no idea.  If you went to school with her, which school was it and did she have any brothers or sisters?
When she was sixteen she worked at the local petrol station. If anybody knows her or knows somebody that might please let me know.

Sorry Peter, I can't help although I lived in the next road.  However, as far as I remember, there was no petrol station on the estate itself in 1961.

Have you tried Friendsreunited?  Local secondary schools at that time were: Durham Hill and Churchdown County Secondary School for girls. Primary schools were Pendragon, Ballamore and Downderry.

Good luck in your search. Do let us know if you get any good leads or if we can help in any other way.

That would be sad indeed, but at least it gives Peter a chance to verify this and at least he would know.  Peter, I'm sorry if this turns out to be true but even if so, you might still find some answers to your questions.

Hi guys.
   Thanks for all the posts. I don't have much info to tell. Possibly her father was Hubert T Kelly. 1923-1997???
House transfer from greater London council  and H Kelly in 1981. I think he was something to do with the Lewisham area.
Pete.

Further to the previous post, The person who brought the house on 83 Shroffold rd is A Wright. if any one knows of her it could be beneficial, she may know of H Kellys previous address and or other relatives, or I can search from and back track his data, Kind of a reverse search to his siblings.Vera kelly would be approxiamatly 66 years, putting here DOB around 1944-46.

OK Peter i will try and find out more info for you but it might take some time, so keep looking in. Could you give me your date of birth, Place of birth and is your name your birth name. That would help me a lot.

What year was your mother born, Peter?  There are four Vera Kellys on people's trees in Genes Reunited: two born in 1944 and two born in 1949. These are people that are listed in family trees and could be the same person.  If the dates tally in any way with your mother's, and if you are not subscribed to Genes R, I would be happy to send a message to the four people whose trees this name appears on.   You never know your luck, do you?
