Good Afternoon Andre

I wonder if you could offer me some advice/assistance please.

My grandmother was demobbed from Shinfield Park in or around the summer of 1946.

Her name was Dora Grimshaw (known as Dimps) & she was a cook in the Officers Mess.It was here that she met my grandfather "Tony" & became pregnant. All we know about him is that he is of Greek possibly Cypriot origin & that he was a Bat Man. He came for the Bayswater area of London where his family had a fish & chip shop.

Please could you offer any advice on how we could find out any details about him as we would like to complete our family tree & have come to a complete standstill.

My lovely grandmother is 89 now but unfortunately suffers from dementia so she is unable to help us in our quest.

Any advice would be most gratefully received.

Kind Regards

If anyone has any information, please contact the Webmaster
