    Hi to the lovely people of Brown Edge,
    I am wondering if anyone can help me locate pictures of my Grandfather, Auckland Horne. He was in the RAF and I have been advised he was a navigator and that his pictures appear in some of your history books. If this is true and someone CAN help then this would be amazing as my family do not own any as they were stolen from my mothers house whilst I was a baby… Here`s hoping,

    Rita Taylor was my cousin. Her parents were Mary Taylor (nee Dawson & Charlie Taylor.
    She was the youngest of 5 children – May, Roy, Alan, Clive & Rita.
    She moved to Torquay with her sister May & family many years ago, and evenyually married Roger Boyce.
    Sadly Rita passed away some years ago now.
    Clive is the only remaining sibling and does indeed live in Leek.

      Hi Robert,
      Sorry for not replying sooner.
      Thank you for the information, since I was last here I have managed to contact Clive and have arranged to meet this week.
      If you could e-mail me I can explain more in a non-open format.

    I am hoping someone maybe able to remember a Rita Taylor that may have been born and raised in Brown Edge maybe sometime between 1945 and 1956/7 ( could be later or earlier) exact dates not known.
    If anyone can confirm or remember anything please let me know.
    I am researching some family history.

    Many thanks
