my name is Denis Slattery, formerly my name was Denis Ali. Myself and my two sister were in the homes from 1955 to 1966, my sisters till 1969-70 inbetween another home in Basildon and Foster Home and back to Hornchurch.
The first house we were in was Nelson,which was just across from Milton if I recall,We had cousins in Milton,but because our Father died 1961,we have no knowlege of any family since.
I cant remember the names of our cousins, but you mentioned Royce Ali and Harris Ali, maybe they are our relatives.
You said that you saw Jennifer Davidson some years later.
I remember Jennifer, with her red hair (Ginger).She also had a brother and Im sure his name was Brian who was also in Nelson Cottage, and a sister called Pauline.
My sisters still live in Suffork and Essex. I now live in Perth Western Australia,but if there was ever a reunion of kids that were in the homes in the fifties and sixties I would be there.
I hope some lovely things have happend in your life Pat.
