Appeal for information about the Timmis family.

My husband and I are spending a week in the Nantwich area at the moment, having visited for the first time approximately 20yrs ago.

During WWII, my father Henry Fennell, a Gunner RA, became friends with a ? Timmis living at 2 Council Houses, Hankelow. Occasionally my mother, my sister and I lived with the Timmis family to escape N London. In Aug 1944, my father warned Mum that the enemy were about to start bombing London with doodlebugs so to take herself, my sister of 3mths & me (3ys) to stay with the Timmis family. I have a good memory of my childhood from the age of 3yrs, recalling times here, the family & the US soldiers with their saying, “Got any gum, chum?” etc. Unfortunately, whilst we were here, my grandfather was killed when a bomb did actually demolish the house we all lived in. Mum had to leave my baby sister with the Timmis family for a few weeks and return with me to settle the family affairs.

My parents are now no longer with us, so I wonder if you possibly have any updated news of the Timmis family? I was surprised to see that the family ran a grocers shop as wasn’t aware of this. A big, big thank you to them from my sister and I for their kind assistance all those years ago.

With best wishes and in anticipation of any assistance.

Pamela Whitworth nee Fennell.

If anyone can help Pamela please contact me and I will pass on your information.
