Elsie accompanies Ena in her search for Minnie to North Cross Cemetery. Dave agrees to use his grapevine to try to find Minnie. Len goes to Liverpool to find Jed and see if Minnie is with him. Emily rows with Dave. Len can't find Jed in Liverpool but PC Conway tells him they've already investigated that lead and Jed is now in Birmingham but without Minnie.
