Hi Dougie.

John W Clarke married Doris M Collins in 1961. Two sons Ian and Paul.
They’re on last year’s electoral roll living at Crossway Road, Coventry CV3 6JN. It’s not far from the airport.
His dad and grandad were both aircraft fitters.

Crossway Road to Lime-tree Avenue is 3 miles.

You can get an address from a phone number but not the other way round.
I’ll ring you later with the house number. You can drop them a line.
