Missing from their lives

It must have been so hard not to have received news of loved ones. Lloyds set up a 'Missing Friends' register. Acting as a go-between, family and friends in the UK could notify Lloyds and pay for their notice to be included with others. The inquirer's address was kept private by Lloyds. I wonder if Lloyds still have these filed somewhere?

These are just a few I found today.
