I'm looking for any travel records to and from South Africa after WW11 and possibly through into the 50's for Thirza Matilda Brelsford (also spelt Thurza) born 1900. She may or may not have been travelling with her husband James Brelsford.

Thank you.

Thank you Ellie, I do have that information about Thirza. I was really looking for any travel records for her to and from South Africa. I guess that she didn't go there.

Thank you too Bootzy. Well, I'm left wondering who was Florence Brelsford, returning to at an address in Nottingham.
