Great to hear from you Robyn. Mum is going well. No family secrets to share from her point of view. It's good to read about the family. Jan and I now have an interest in researching both Mum and Dad's family trees and hope to spend more time in future days doing so.

As I said in the PM, good luck with your investigations. Of the people I spoke to with direct knowledge of the 20th century family, your mother is the only one still alive but there is one line of enquiry I might get back to.  I discontinued it because the stony silence and closing of ranks from various quarters was quite off-putting (as it was obviously meant to be). Perhaps one last try ...

In relation to reply 20 on 29 March, Alfred James Maddison (first child of Hannah Eleanora Motley - nee Maddison) the funeral was held at The Salvation Army in Balfour Street and the family home where he died, was 14 Hudson Street. Just a minor detail but our family lived in that house with Alfred James Maddison's youngest daughter, Beryl Alfreda Alchin (my mother) until I was 8 years of age.  Jan
