Spencer French
Hello. I served my mission in England and Sunderland was my first area. I served from 1997 to 1998. Elder Harr and I (Elder French) baptized an amazing guy and I have lost all contact. Hoping to make contact with him. I have no idea if he is still in Sunderland, still alive, active, ect. His name is Robert Ratcliff. He was a great man. Can you please help me? My email is and I am also on Facebook. Thank you.

I served as a missionary in Sunderland for 8 months in 1971. I am on your missionary list, but I am from Sweden - not Denmark! I will definitely visit Sunderland ward during 2017. I enjoyed your website immensely. So wonderful to see what is going on 45 years after my mission. I loved serving in Sunderland. Baptized Ken and Eileen Turner and their children, if you remember them, and the mother of Ruth (Lakeman) Safak and many more. Looking forward to hearing from you. I live in Gothenburg, Sweden and have served as Stake President here for over 10 years.

Just a correction to your Index section if I may. You refer to "Sunderland, Tyne and Wear (formally County Durham)." It's "formerly" and the City of Sunderland is still officially in County Durham (see Association of British Counties website). "Tyne and Wear" is a defunct Metropolitan administrative area. Sunderland is, in fact, a Unitary Authority in its own right.

Best regards,

Sarah Furness
Hello, I have sent an email however I will leave a message here also. My father and his parents and sister worked and lived at Town End Farm, he left the farm to join the army as a young man. My Grandmother Sarah Furness is buried at Castletown Cemetery and my parents were married at St Mary Church. We visited the cemetery when my father was alive however, there had been some vandalism and we think my grand mothers headstone had been broken. Any pictures or information relating to town end farm would be welcome. My grandfather worked at the Colliery also. Family names were Furness and grandmothers maiden name was Conboy.

Lisa Stolarski
Greetings. My name is Lisa Stolarski; I am researching my family's genealogy and the birthplace of my great grandfather on my mother's mother's side is listed as William Rennis Smith from Sunnybrough, England. I figured out that there is not more borough of Sunnybrough, but there are two William Smiths in your records. One of them has no date or town associated. I wonder if this might be my great grandfather, his parents were Owen Smith and Ella Kenna. If this William Smith is indeed my great grandfather then it might interest you to know that he moved to Monongahela Pennsylvania where he was an importer of European goods until the market crash of 29. He then lived in Pittsburgh and operated an elevator in a fine hotel called the William Pitt. He married Rose Barrett and had three children in Pennsylvania, Mary Cecilia, my grandmother, William Smith and Rennis Smith, my great-uncles. Rennis died of fever during WWII.

It is so good to see members from the past on the guestbook, we are starting a “Memories” page and are looking for stories, Photos or memories of Sunderland Ward that we could use for everyone to see.
If you would like to contribute to this please e-mail me at sunderlandward.
