A WOMAN is hoping Mail readers can help her trace her long-lost relatives.

Margaret Findlay, who lives in Haltwhistle in Northumberland, is trying to find any relatives of her late grandfather, Wilfred Robinson. Wilfred was born in Horden and married Mildred Swindle from Haltwhistle in 1924. They had two daughters, the late Muriel and Joyce. Margaret is one of Murielís two daughters and would like to get in touch with any relatives that may still be alive and living in the Horden area. She said Wilfred had brothers and sisters, one of the sisters was named Gerty who had a daughter called Rita Hall. Ritaís last known address was Webb Square. Margaret added that her mother had several cousins, including one called Pearl and a Marshall Robinson.
