I dont think its your sister as Ethel only had a brother Gerald and they lived in Byrom street. Her Dad got killed in the 2nd world war

My brother said that doris had died.The other person Ethel spoke about was her uncle Walter who had a pen in poolstock.
Ethel and Gerald are 11 and 13 years older than me.nice to see pitures of her.

Walter was my Dad, the pen was in Park Street in Poolstock. Does Ethel & Gerrald still live at Marus Bridge?
