I am currently researching the family tree of my paternal grandmother Winifred Cooke, born March 28th 1906, in Mansfield.
I can trace her movements in the Mansfield, Nottingham and Leeds areas up until the mid 950’s, by which time she had left Cumberland where she had lived for several years. I am, however, unable to find out what happened to her after this.
My father, Gordon Bramwell Cooke, Winifred’s eldest son, also had a half brother, Peter Cecil Brand who was Winifred’s youngest son and he was born in Nottingham.
Again I cannot trace what happened to Peter as they also appear to have lost contact.
Winifred’s parents were Florence Emma and Charles Henry Cooke. She also had two brothers, Charles Percy (b 1900), George Spencer Cooke (b 1902) and a sister Phyllis May (b 1909). If anyone recognises the names or can remember them I would be really pleased to hear from you.
