I have been looking for J.F.Rose from Bryer House in Penzance.Cornwall.UK. I have found out that J.F.Rose has a sister called Wendy and a brother called Brian Rose. J.F.Rose worked at St Mary’s hospital in Portsmouth in 1963 as a domestic worker.She was born on 16/09/1944 She had a son in the same hospital in the same year. 26/01/1963. He was named Guy Martin Rose. I know this is a delicate subject in both cases but I was told at a early age that I was adopted at 4 months old. I have my original birth certificate with relevant information on. I now feel it’s time to make contact.I am hoping that you might be able to help me please. Kind Regards Reply Mike Walling March 3, 2012 Wonderful photographs. I always think are there any surviving descendants/relatives who can identify anyone depicted here? Some of the houses must be recognisable as well? Reply MattF April 10, 2012 Found the Towednack Church in Google Earth: 50.189251° -5.522075° A search for Carbis Bay turns up this: 50.198327° -5.464773° Reply Barb July 13, 2012 Did you notice that the two women in the photos of “Ford” and “Farm House near Ford” appear to be holding the same exact pose in both photos? The only difference is that they are further apart in the “Farm House near Ford” photo. Have a feeling a bit of early “photoshopping” done here! LOL Reply May July 20, 2012 Barb- doesn’t look like it, because there are small differences in the angle of the had, and the feet of the woman in the green sweater are spaced differently Reply May July 20, 2012 *head Reply harrisonux September 2, 2012 Damn HTML tags!
