This question already has an answer here:

In the whole series we never know who were Harry's grandparents. He sees them in that magical mirror in the first book but it does not ever occur to him to ask about them from anyone. He never wonders how they died or where they lived nor he ever asks about any relatives from his father's side.

Why JKR never mentioned the Potters? Has she had any interview about this?
