Hi Patricia Five years late in finding your message on this Forum! I am your cousin, John Alfred Cartmell, son of your father's brother, John James Cartmell. My sister Ann & I are very interested in our family history,as are our 8 children. We are also in contact with Claire & Rena, daughters of your father's sister, Norah, and Brenda, daughter of your father's sister Rena. I have traced our Cartmell family tree back to Nicholas Cartmell who died in 1714 and will be delighted to share information with you. We will also be very pleased to learn about our Australian cousins. I remember meeting your Dad (in his para uniform) for the first time when I was about 6. I can remember meeting your Mum with Barry.
