Dear Editor, My grandmother died when my mother was two years old and she has never even seen a picture of her, my mother and I have tried many avenues to locate family and photos but to no avail and I was wondering if your readers may have known my grandmother.
My grandmother’s name is Dora Winfred Bellamy born on May 17, 1911 at 84 Dugdale Street Winson Green B18. My great grandparent’s names were Annie Bellamy and James William Bellamy.
My grandmother had one son Raymond Bellamy.
My grandmother married my granddad William Henry Harwood and he lived at 79 Ada Road Smethwick. My uncle Albert Edward Harwood was born in Smethwick and my aunt Enid Winifred Harwood. My mother is Maureen Rose Harwood. She was born at 171 Devonshire Street Winson Green B18 and it was at this address that my grandmother died 23 Febuary 1945 aged 32. From this time my mother has not had any contact with her mother’s side of the family and I really would like to make contact with anyone that knew or knows anything about the Bellamy or Harwood family. After the death of my grandmother Dora my granddad married Ethel Bates form Winson Green and had three children. This has been a long search for over eight years, so anyone that can help me I would be most grateful.
Please send any information to the Post letters page and they will pass it on.
Wheeler Street, Newtown, Birmingham
