Can you help with the Henderson and Emerson families?

An Aussie relative wants to make contact with relatives or someone who may have known or remembers the Hendersons and Emersons.

Can you help with the Henderson and Emerson families?

 

Norman Victor Emerson

 

I know it's a long time ago but hoping for a miracle.


(1) Lena Henderson, husband Norman Victor Henderson, and their son Norman Victor Henderson (born 1937 Belfast) who lived at 49 Copperfield Street, Belfast. Lena’s name was listed in the Belfast Street Directories at this address from the 1940’s to 1976, and may have died around 1976 as she would have been in her seventies by then. I have been informed that the residential housing in the street has been replaced with business premises.

Norman Victor Henderson was awarded the Military Medal in 1940 for Dunkirk (rank Sergeant). He was in the 2nd Battalion, Royal Ulster Rifles, and from my research probably joined the army in the early 1920's.

 

(2) Elizabeth Emerson, husband William John Emerson, and their son James Hodges Emerson who died on the 5 November 1940 while serving on the SS Kenbane Head (Merchant Navy) at the age of 20 (born December 1919 Belfast). In 1937 they were living at 130 Cosgrave Street, Belfast.

Appreciate any information on the above.

Mary

James Hodges Emerson 1940
