Hi.

I am looking for my Grandfather, who I believe to be Alan Lewis.

He lost contact with my Grandmother Catherine Patricia Aird (Pat) in about 1965.

It is believed that Alan worked as a TV Engineer at Fleet Electrics Ltd (11 East Avenue) in Harlington and was last known to be living at Richards Close.

My Grandmother died in 1974, my Mum has never met her Father and is keen to establish some contact, or even just an acknowledgement that someone knows him and he is real.

Any thoughts would be great, even if you remember the smallest detail.

Thanks

When I was a paper boy there never was an East Ave in Harlington, in Hayes yes. Between leaving school 1953 and starting my App at EMI I worked at a toy factory in Harling High street, making toy cars mainly, it used to be a schoolhouse next to the Min train track and was called John White, and owned by a Fred Lewis,

I did work at the above address until 1967, I have a vague recollection of someone with that name. However after all this time that is all I have. sorry.

I have also tried to locate any business accounts which may mention employees but no luck so far.
