recent Boak family history

My mother's name was Mary boak, born in Ashington, Northumberland, England (1928) died in Ontario, Canada (2001). She married Thomas Heslop Bell and immigrated to Canada in 1967.
She had a brother Joseph, also deceased. Joseph had a son Gordon who lives in the Newcastle area.
She also had a sister Joyce who lives in Morpeth.
Her Parents were John Boak (1902-1965) and Olive, maiden name Hedley.
John had two brothers, William and George, all from Ashington.
I would be interested in any information about the Boak family history from the Newcastle area, particularly about John Boaks parents.
I live in London, Canada; have a bother Kevin in Canada and another brother Ian in Newcastle.
Any response would be welcome!
