I know they had lots of children, two of them they murdered. But what became of the other children? I assume the younger ones were taken into care when it all came out, but what has happened since? Did they have to change their names and move away? I'd imagine they were quite seriousley damaged by what went on in that house. I hope they have managed to have to some kind of normal life since.

Do they still live in Gloucester and if so do people know who they are?

I dont expect to be told exactly where they are. Im just a bit interested after watching a programme about Fred and Rose yesterday.

Do you think they'd want people knowing who and where they are?

Probably not. But the eldest son was the spitting image of Fred if my memory serves me. People must know who he is?

3 of the adult children have written books about the ordeal. I believe the 2 daughters have changed their name. That is all I know.

If they were given new identities there was a very good reason for that. So people like you couldn't find out what happened to them.

Yes, I know one of the Wests children, one of the daughters. She works with my girlfriends mother in a large retailer. People know who she is. To all intents and purposes, very normal and seemingly getting on with life. I see her sometimes and my future MIL gets on well with her.

The son, Stephen went off the rails a few times, hopefully doing better now.

Never thought they were going to hunt them down. Just live and let live.

Nobody is saying anything bad about them, only expressing an interest, that is all.

Just read this about the son, Stephen:

In January 2002, he too attempted suicide. In a chilling echo of his father's death, he tried to hang himself but survived when the rope snapped.

In December 2004 Stephen, 32, was jailed for nine months for having sex with a girl of 14. He's now out of jail and living in Stroud, Gloucester.

Stephen has admitted: "There's a bit of my dad in me."
The same article says that daughter Anne-Marie also attempted suicide, and daughter Mae has a new identity.

As far as we know, living new lives somewhere else under new identities that's all we need to know.

Some of the things those bstrds did to their victims are beyond words.

One skeleton of a teenage girl was found with the entire head wrapped tightly with gaffer tape apart from a drinking straw sticking out of her mouth - to allow her to breathe while they were doing whatever they did to her in the lead up to her murder.

That evil **** Rose should never be released.

don't think its any of our business what happened to them. they should be allowed to come to terms with the horrors of their upbringing and remain annonymous.

i think one of their older sons got into some kind of trouble tho.

THey have had so much to deal with, without people being nosy and wondering how they're living their lives - they have amazing strength of character - and having read the books Anne-Marie, Stephen & Mae wrote I have nothing but admiration for them, and wish them the best - away from any publicity

Why the hostility toward the OP? They 'd recently seen a programme specifically about this subject and it sparked their curiosity. Perfectly natural. They clearly don't have malicious intent at all. Some of the reactions here are ridiculous.

I don't even want to express an interest in them and I'm sure they don't want me to either.

Too right - Some people are just genuinely concerned to hear if the children have managed to achieve some normaility in their lives. That's as far as it goes. Its not ghoulish.

God, there's some holier than thou posters on here.
