Chris Walker created the topic: Dowdeswell - Walker
I took my mother back to Bisley, where she was born in 1924, for the first time in ages the other day. She was born in the house just up from the Chapel in the main street - parents: Alfred Charles Walker and Beatrice Annie Walker (nee Dowdeswell). I was wondering if there are any in the village these days who would remember the family. My mother left with her parents for Kent around 1929/30 but used to visit annually for perhaps 20-30 years. She's still in contact with immediate family in the Eastcombe, Stroud and Gloucester areas but I thought it would be good to learn of others who were around at that time.
