I’m looking for informations about sister of my grandfather (Bronislaw Gawdzik) – Feliksa Bura (Gawdzik) and her daughters Bronislawa and Boguslawa Bura and son Witold Bura. Feliksa Bura was born in Chruslanki Jozefowskie in Poland. I know she lived with her daughters in Koja CAMP in Uganda (Africa). Feliksa Bura with daughters is on passenger list of CARNARVON CASTLE ship (Sailed from DURBAN and MOMBASA arriving on the 28th of June 1948 in SOUTHAMPTON with over 1000 Polish Displaced women, children and the elderly and were assigned to DAGLINGWORTH CAMP in Gloucestershire). Passenger list: 265 BURA Feliksa 50 (age) Housekeeper , 266 BURA Bronisława 18 (age) Dressmaker, 267 BURA Bogusława 16 (age) Student. I know that Boguslawa and Bronislawa, they were in the Polish Military Hospital No.4 on holiday ("urlop"). Feliksa Bura got married there but I don’t know surname of her new husband. Thank you in advance for your help. Grzegorz Gawdzik
I am looking for my grandmother. she was in Daglingworth camp about 1948 , her name is Zofia Ploszaj my mom Halina was also there with her brother around the same time. My mom and uncle had come to canada but my grandmother had died there. Can anyone help me out? i'm trying to find where she was buried. Thank you.
You will have to find the nearest Parish church to Daglingworth Camp and surrounding areas.Google it. A phone call to any of these may prove successful, because if this is your grandmother you will have all the relevant details. Burial will probably be roughly a week to ten days after death.
OH WOW Thank you soooooo much Arnes...I really appreciate your help..the war displaced so many people and scattered everyone. I can't express the thanks for taking the time to help..Thank you very much...Searching.
i'm searching for any information concerning 2 passengers on the cardavon castel passenger manifest [28 june 1948] passenger no 538=jacyno zofia age 18 clerk.andpassenger no 539=jacyno wincenty age 78 farmer apparently they were assigned to daglingworth camp...any information...please.
On Ancestry I found the following information. Zofia Jacyno married 1950, spouse Bernatowicz in Newton Abbot ,Devon.
Wincenty Jacyno died aged 80 years in 1950, Newton Abbot Devon. It seems to be the same family re your information of Wincenty aged 78 years in 1948. The location is further south west, maybe someone knows of any camp locations in Devonshire.

I'm looking for information about my father, Wladyslaw Stankowski, where he is, and if he is still alive or not. We lived at Daglingworth Hostel from October 1947 for about nine years. My parents separated quite early on and the last time I saw my father very briefly I think it was 1964. He would be 88 now, and may have lived in Swindon for some time. My friend and I are also having difficulty in finding out how our families were transported from Germany to England (Harwich) in 1947. Thanking you in anticipation. Helena (Halina)

Thank you Arnes for your generous imput. We live in Australia and so a family member in England had some time ago found the same information for me. I have been looking into this again because the birth date that I have doesn't match with the date on the death record. Off course people change their age for all sorts of reasons but 7 years seems a lot to me. I will take the plunge and enrol with ancestry for other family info. Thank you once again Arnes. Helena.
Poszukuje informacji o siostrze mojego dziadka Feliksie Bura z domu Gawdzik urodzonej 18 wrzesnia 1899 roku w Chruslankach (lubelskie, Polska). Podczas II wojny swiatowej wraz z rodziną została deportowana z miejscowosci Orlopol (Wydumka) do obwodu molotowskiego w ZSRR. Po amnestii z roku 1941 roku wraz z Armią Andersa i cała rodziną przebyła drogę aż do obozu uchodźców Koja w Ugandzie. 28 czerwca 1948 roku statkiem CARNARVON CASTLE dotarła do Wielkiej Brytanii do obozu w Daglingworth. Po II wojnie światowej Feliksa Bura utrzymywała kontakt z częścią rodziny w Polsce , ale obecnie nikt z żyjących osób nie posiada informacji, gdzie mieszkała i jakie były dalsze losy jej rodziny. Feliksa Bura miała córkę Bolesławę, Bogusławę, syna Witolda. Prowadzę poszukiwania genealogiczne rodziny i proszę o jakiekolwiek informacje o Feliksie i jej rodzinie. Życie Feliksy i jej rodziny, która przeszła przez deportację, obozy i osiadła w Wielkiej Brytanii są na tyle ważne dla mnie, że nie mogę pozwolić by odeszła w zapomnienie. Poniżej zdjęcia Feliksy, jej syna Witolda z żoną i dziećmi.
