  • I’m so touched about what has happened

  • I believe that during the time of the flood my paternal grandmother’s brother (?) lived on Canvey Island…a name I bring to mind is Herbert Roch/Roach. I am also lead to believe that my grandmother herself was born/or lived there. Does anyone have any relevant information regarding her family?

  • I was 9years old on that Sunday, and was living with my nan down MAY AVENUE at the time, it was an adventure at that age. We got a rowing boat out and was rowing in the back garden until the army evacuated us to Shipwrights Drive school, not too sure how long we were there but I do remember that the school was bursting at the seams with families, but still it was a great adventure to a nine year old.
