JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Seeking GARDNER family in London, UK #general


Werner Hirsch
 

I am trying to locate one or both of a peir of brothers >from London, UK. They are
my second cousins:
Michael Lawrence GARDNER, b. Dec. 1956, London, England, and
Simon J. GARDNER, b. June 1959, London, England

Their parents were:
John Alan GARDNER, b. 19 Jan 1921, Karlsruhe, Germany, d. 4 Aug 1976, London,
England (Before emigrating to England his name was Hans August GARTNER (a umlaut);
he was commonly known as Jack) and Gabi HEILBRON or LOWENTHAL, b. 24 Apr. 1930, d.
Feb. 1992, London, England [In 1946 she was listed in the London Gazette as Gabi
HEILBRON formerly Gaby LOWENTHA, but I have no idea what that means]

The family moved to England in the late 1930s, Jack's parents, Max and Irma
GARDNER, are buried in the Bushey Cemetery in Hertfordshire, but I have no idea
where Jack and Gabi are buried.

During WWII Jack served with the RAF. In the early 1960s I visited Jack and Gabi,
who then lived at 72/74 Ridgeway, Golders Green, London.

I would greatly appreciate any help that someone could give me to locate the
brothers Michael and Simon GARDNER.
