I've got a bit of a chat with my G/Dad who is Walter Sidney (aka Sidney) RICHARDS' son but he can't remember much as apparently the father of W.Sidney took his life when W.Sidney was about 2 and back then that sort of thing wasn't really discussed???? Also, probably, with coming over to a new country when he was so little he (W.Sidney) may not have remembered too much to be able to tell/talk to about to his own kids. G/Dad remembers something about the mother (Lena) coming out with W.Sidney and another daughter but wasn't sure which one. He thought there were about 12 (?) kids in the family.
Every little bit helps and I hope I might get a chance sometime to go through some old family photos with G/Dad or an uncle (G/Dad's brother) while they're still around and in sane frame of mind.... :o)
