Looking for families of a Mosquito crew: John Towsey and Richard Kingham

August 6, 1944: a Mosquito from the 544th squadron (based in Benson) crashes in the north east of Lyon and his crew is killed.

A friend will soon set up a memorial on site and he would like to invite the families of the crew for the inauguration.

How find if there are still relatives ? Did they have children ? grand children? Nephews ?

Any help is very much appreciated.
