My mother's name is Mary Cochrane..Maiden Surname..Smith Brown. Before marriage, she lived at Kintra St,Govan. They married in August 1933 at St.Kiaran's Dean Park Church,Govan,Glasgow.
My grandparents on father's side were George Cochrane(an Upholsterer)and Helen Cochrane..Maiden Surname..Reeder.She remarried sometime before 1933,name now Clark. Grandparents on my mother's side were Thomas Brown(a Trunk Maker)and Catherine Brown..Maiden Surname..Smith. She remarried some time before 1933 also,name now Connolly. I have been told that both my grandfather's on mother's side were killed in WW1 and subsequently WW2.

my grandparents(mother's side),would be much appreciated.
