I am trying to make contact with Diana Allcock, nee Taylor, Who I have recently discovered is My 2nd cousin on my late mothers side, while following up on my mothers family history

I know from a mutual cousin, Alice, that Diana has recently returned from Africa and this is borne out in this blog. I understand her address is , or was, 41 Cobbett Rd, Bittermere but the telephone number Alice has given me is unobtainable, and I would very much like to talk to her when she has time. I I currently live in Newcastle but shortly will be moving to Sussex.

Please would you pass my email address on to her? 0191 4889127"
