( The other side I am looking for is the Gray family in India. My grandmother was Mona Myrtle Gray. Her father (James Edwin) a British officer died and my grandmother and her siblings were taken away from their Mother (Pearl Edna who was anglo-Indian) and put into the Taylor school. Pearl Edna seems to have disappeared. She desperately tried to contact her children but by the time they had grown up, she had died. I cant find any record of her after her marriage certificate. I would be very grateful if you can shed light on any of this. Best regards Shay )
