Welcome Karen.
Your enquiry can be better dealt with in the 'lost friends and family' it might be worth putting your question in there as well.
I am sure there will be someone on here who will try to help you.

Karen, have you some dates or addresses for these relatives of yours?
Be careful when you follow the masses...sometimes the 'M' is silent.

Re: Accy Family Mortimerís

Hi Karen
I like many more on here did know a Arthur Mort as we knew him, I did not know him very well but do remember him as he used to get down Clayton a bit and have gill or two in the Hare n Hounds or any other pub on the way to Trelly's scrap yard with his horse n cart as he used to do a bit of rag tattin. Can see him now Portly chap a round red face, flat hat long coat and leather brat. Don't know if this is the A Mort your after
but must say he was a grand chap.
