Ruth was related to my dad!
Ruth was my grandmother. I am interested to hear if anyone has anymore information about her. It is great to hear that so many people still support her. It's amazing to think that I actually have some Welsh blood in me! Thanks.
I am a distant relative. I think it I am 3rd or 4th cousin on my mothers side. As my mums grandfather was an Ellis and I think his brother was Ruth Ellis's grandfather. I have not managed to trace this yet, I don't know where to start!
