Together Again - Searching for long-lost cousin Beryl

A RETIRED craftsman has asked the Mail to help reunite him with his long-lost cousin.

Terry Dee, 69, who lives in Banbury in Oxfordshire, wants to contact his second cousin, Beryl Cassidy (nee Worthy), who he has not seen for 60 years.

Beryl was born in 1937 and lived in Hartlepool.

Her grandmother, Ada Cloke, and Terry’s grandfather, Charles Dee, were brother and sister and they grew up on The Green, in Greatham.

Ada married George Cloke and their daughter, Esther was Beryl’s mum.

Charles Dee’s son Thomas was Terry’s father.

Thomas moved to Oxfordshire after being located with his job with Middlesbrough-based aluminium factory Priest Furnaces before Terry was born.

But Terry remembers visiting Beryl in Hartlepool as a boy.

He has even visited Greatham when he regular travels north for trips to Redcar.

The father-of-three, who is married to Patricia and has two grandchildren, said: “We haven’t been in touch since the late 1940s.

“Living 200 miles away, it was just one of those things.

“I have never seen any pictures of my grandparents and wonder if Beryl might have any, as she was closely associated with Greatham.”

If Beryl recognises herself, or if anyone else can help, they can call Terry on (01295) 258016.
