Help with family tree search for Bendelows

I AM researching my family tree and have recently found out that my maternal grandmother came from the Scarborough area, her name was Margaret Bendelow and she lived and worked in Scarborough with her elder sister Jane as a fish curer in and around the early 1900s.

She also had a much younger brother named George who remained in Scarborough until his death in approximately the 1950s/1960s.

Margaret later moved to Leeds and lived with her partner George Shaw, they had four children, two boys George and William (Billy) and two girls Margaret (Maggie) and Annie - Annie is my mother.

What I would like to know is if any of the descendants of the Bendelow family are still residing in the Scarborough area.

I would appreciate it if they would please contact me at the address below or via email at with any information possible about Margaret and her family, as children we knew her as Granny Ben.

Any and all information would be of great value and assistance to us, and we will appreciate all that we receive.
