Halifax Crew relatives

I have been researching the crew of LW546 MH-R on behalf of my Gram who was the sister of the Rear Gunner.

To Date i have informed and found Four of the seven crews relatives, including one family in New Zealand and another in Australia.

I have three to find and a possible two guys who may be alive today who left the crew shortly before the last flight.

These two are maybe alive today

F/O Sykes. W.H. (william Henry?) 1944
P/O Douglas 1944

The last three families im trying to find are for

P/O AUBREY FRANCIS COWLING
F/O SIDNEY HARRY COLEMAN
Sgt WILLIAM LEONARD HEALEY

any scrap of info is welcome.
