Hello there....



Hello my name is Dottie, and I originate from Caterham in Surrey..

I am researching my Family History of the Lakers, Creepers, Smiths and Groses.

I was bought up in care from 1951 through to 1968, and after applying and receiving my in care records from The Surrey County Council archives with a view to finding my mum, which I did so, but sadly passed over...I was able to make contact with another brother, a sister, and a cousin, who I hadn't previously known of...we are all in contact now and catching up on years past....over 50 to be exact....

and my avatar is of the original Salvation Army Citadel in Caterham, sadly no more... my grandfather William john Laker is mentioned in a Bourne Society Book in Caterham, as being a founder member there in the early 1900's..yet to find out more...
