Prickly Holly yes this is my paternal grandfather, his son Charles was my late father, Winifred celebrated her 100th. birthday earlier this year.

Mike - may have been but the family as I know it have just used Corp.

SafCraigswinnerton - will try and follow this up, info. has been sketchy from family - should have started research much earlier!,
