I’M writing to inquire about my grandmother Gertrude Lillian Flowers and her parents Gertrude Roope (born 1878 in Wisbech) married Fred Flowers (born 1876 Sutton St Edmunds) and her siblings Violet, George, Daisy and Fred Jnr were born and raised in Wisbech
That is where they were living when they moved to the US in 1911.
This year the Flowers family is celebrating its 80th family reunion in July.
I’m putting together a book on our English heritage.
I’m trying to find out as much about England as I can for the book: pictures, postcards, etc would be helpful.
Are there still Roope/Flowers in Wisbech?
Who can I contact for more information?
Gertrude and Fred Snr were married May 30, 1898 at St Augustine’s. Church.
Mary Roope and daughter Hannah and granddaughter Gertrude lived at 2a Canal Street. Are there any pictures of these?
