Raymond John Osborne was born in 1931 in Birmingham. The birth was registered between April & June. He was a maintenance engineer. He also worked as a fireman on steam railway engines. Royston Clifford Osborne was born in 1935 in Birmingham. Th birth was registered between April & June. I have no knowledge of his occupation. I did find a listing of a Roy & Paul Osborne living in the same apartment block, but did not chase this up at the time.

Mississauga is close to Toronto, so I checked the Toronto newspapers, but didn't have any luck. In the Canada Gazette of 1981, Vol. 115, p. 114, a Royston Clifford Osborne is listed in Mississauga and above his name is a Barbara Florence Osborne. Unfortunately, it's a snippet view on Google eBooks, so that's all I can see and the federal government only has copies online that were published after 1998. Very frustrating!

I'll private message you with some further information I just found.

Thanks very much for that lead. I will certainly follow it up.
Laurie, I have mislaid your reply to my question. Can you send it again please. I still have not succeeded in tracking down my Osborne cousins. Regards, Don
I'm so sorry, Don, but I can't seem to find it. I'll keep looking.
I have found an address from 1995. So have written in the hope that someone remembers the family.
Best of luck!
That information would definitely relate to my cousin. His wife is Barbara.
