"Uncle Walter". Married Ada. Two children Walter and Doris.
They lived at Sydenham. One address was Peak Hill, another Kinver Road North. I have a recollection that Mother said Ada liked to move quite often.
Their daughter Doris was three years older than Betty, but Betty has had no news of Doris for 20 years (This was in 1980). So far as is known the children Walter and Doris are still alive.
Uncle Walter was a talented sketcher. (Betty has several pictures and cartoons drawn by him.) He worked in newspaper advertising.
Their son Walter also married an Ada, and they lived with us for a time at 2 Morna Rd. They had a son Jimmy and two other sons.
