BRETTELL/London and America
One of my great grandfather’s sisters, Elsie or Elise Brettell, married an American sailor called Val in July 1945 in London. A year later they had a son, also named Val. There’s no record of their marriage or a birth record for their son.
We have photographs of the father and son dated from 1950, taken in the United States. We believe contact was lost when my great grandfather died in a mining incident in 1958. We have details of other family members from research, but how can I make contact with this family? Michael Dymond, by email
