Rose and Dave Danaher are my great grandparents!

Their daughter Rose is my Nan, she is be podge.

I replied earlier today to this posting but my message is not on the board. apologies if you get this twice!

Rose married Dave around 1926/27, my Nan Rose was born in June 1927 and my great uncle Dave in 1929. The original family surname is Danaher but they changed it to Danahar for when they were boxing as they thought that it made them sound 'less irish' - my great grandad's family came over from Ireland.

I dont know if you know, but I am very sorry to tell you if you didnt, that Rose and Dave both died at the end of the 1980's. Their son Dave died a couple of years ago in Australia, he had a daughter Marie who has three children called Miriam Hannah and Samuel, but they live in Hong Kong. My Nan Rose is still very much alive and is very happy and loves life (if that doesn't sound too corny!). Her daughter Sandra is my mum. I also have a brother called Michael. We all live in Romford in Essex

Me and my mum have been trying to find out about our family for a few years now but havent really known where to look to be honest. I hope that we may be of some assistence to you in finding out about our families. My university email address is Please let me know if you do manage to find any other information.

The stories about my greatgrandparents are now legendary in our family. It would be nice to be able to share them with other people who knew them.

Good luck in searching.

Rachel Denham
