What a fascinating thread.

In the 60's it was fashionable for news journalists to attend funerals and write reports for the local paper. These usually listed those attending, often with relationship to the deceased, and also the flowers sent plus dedications on the accompanying cards.

I lived in NW London as a child and remember that the borough of Brent was formed in 1965, combining the former boroughs of Wembley and Willesden.  I know there was a Willesden Chronicle which became the Willesden & Brent Chronicle.

Perhaps it would be worth checking out?

hi there Gail,
I have seen your post regarding your dad Jimmy gold (McGonigal) my grandmother from anderston was Catherine McGonigal she married my grandfather James McDowall they stayed in anderston all there days. my father John McDowall said that he was related to Jimmy I think Catherine and Jimmy may have been cousins, I am doing some research on my granny's side I think she came over from Derry? she was married in St Patricks church anderston in 1914 it would be great if you know anything about Catherine she was known as kate in anderston  my name is Stephen McDowall   
many thanks, god bless
