Hello, I am Mandy (nee Clover) my dad is Albert who is Lillians brother. I remember auntie Lil and uncle Jim very well and we used to visit them in the flat above the shops opposite Duddestone Manor railway station. My mom is Pat and my sister is Melanie and my brother is Dean. Are you related to my cousin Pam or Robert? I can tell you that auntie Lils brother John, sister Winnie, sister Iris, sister Shirley, sister Joan and sister Yvonne are well.
I also have fond memories of Johnny and Lil Pratt and David and Derek although havent seen anyone for years. It was lovely to come across this thread and bring back some lovely old memories. Everyone loved nanny Bess ( I always called her nanny Best :). Sitting in her back room with the newspaper open at the racing page and her magnifying glass resting on it. I stayed with nanny Bess for a few days when auntie Lil died, she was inconsolable. Memories of auntie Lil with the beautiful beehive hairstyle will stay with me forever. Loads of fun times with Pam who was always my favourite cousin. Very sad that we all seem to have lost touch. Who knows its my 50th in a couple of years, maybe its time for a Clover/Pratt reunion, just like the old days. Love to all your family who might remember me and good luck with your search. xxxxxx
