I AM hoping readers may be able to help me with some information on my aunt Grace Kathleen Dyke, who was born in the Eastbourne area c1920.

Her parents were Frederick Henry Dykes and Grace Kathleen Moore and her paternal grandparents Tom and Louisa Dykes of Eastbourne, born at Andover, Hampshire,c1860s.

Grace Kathleen Dykes had an older brother Frederick Edward Harold Dykes (my father) born 1919 in Eastbourne. The family was split up when the parents separated c1925.

Frederick, who was always known as Ted, was sent to an orphanage in the North East England.

He did not hear from his sister again but believed she was adopted by a family member who may have changed her name.

Perhaps readers may remember my father’s family. I would very much like to discover what happened to my Aunt Grace Kathleen (pictured).
