Apologies to all who have seen this too many times before. Just on the
off chance that anyone recognises the names. I am searching for members
of my foster family from before my time in Barnardos. I am trying to
find Penelope and Cynthia who in 1954 had the surname Threadgold. I
believe Penelope was then 7 years old and Cynthia 12. They lived at
various addresses in York Rd Southend-on-Sea, with Frank and Hilda
Threadgold. The problem is that although Penelope and Cynthia used the
name Threadgold there is no evidence that they were actually the
children of Frank and Hilda and no evidence that either of them married
using the name Threadgold. It would appear that in 1956/7 Frank and
Hilda returned to Manchester where they had originally come from. But
in the early 1960s I know that Penelope was resident in the borough
children's home in Shoeburyness Essex. Farnk and Hilda have since died.
Penelope and Cynthia would have known me as Gareth Dafydd Curle.

Searches using info-disk the uk electoral register etc have all been unsucessful they simply do not appear there.

Hilda may have died at Withington Hospital Manchester in 1989. I have a
death certificate which shows the deceased's usual address as
Withington Hospital Manchester the informant was a James Fitton of the
same address, qualification Occupier. There seems to be some confusion
over some of the deceased details, I suspect that she is the Hilda
Threadgold who I have been searching for many years but the death has
been registered in the name Hilda Lloyd widow of ---- Lloyd Occupation
Unknown. Hilda Threadgold's husband's full name was Frank Lloyd
Threadgold Mrs Threadgold and Mrs Lloyd have the same date of birth
both were supposedly born in Manchester, I strongly suspect given that
Hilda Threadgold has disappeared of the face of the earth, that they
are the same person, but need to be able to prove it. Frank died at the
Withington in 1968/9
