Help me in search for mum’s family

40 Poplar Road




I would like to contact any family of my mum, Barbara Hill, who came from Halifax. Their last known address was Burleigh Street, King Cross, Halifax, in 1956.

My mum was born at St Peter Street, Halifax, in 1927 and passed away on December 9 2012. Her mum, my grandmother, was Susan Hill, born in 1905. They both worked at Riley’s or Mackintosh’s in the 1950s .

Susan Hill’s parents were Eliza Kate Hill, nee Wormald, and Roland Hill. Susan had a twin brother, Richard, brother Horace and sisters Lilly, Annie Joan and Jean Marjory.

Eliza Kate Hill passed away in Burleigh Street in 1956. My mum, Barbara Hill ,left Halifax shortly afterwards with my brother Roland and never went back.

I know very little about my mum’s family and would like to hear from any relatives or anyone who knew her. I hope your readers can help.
