Peter Sheffield of Peter Sheffield Coaches, Neptune Street, Cleethorpes
« on: Sunday 26 October 14 12:05 GMT (UK) »
Hi,  Can anyone give me any information on Peter Sheffield, who owned Peter Sheffield Coaches in Neptune Street, Cleethorpes. 
My brother served his apprtenticeship there from 1965 until 1971 and he has asked me if I could find out what happened to Peter Sheffield, perhaps an obituary etc.
I think Peter Sheffield sold this business in the 1970's possibly to a Stan Marfleet.  It is no longer in Neptune Street, was demolished several years ago.

Look forward to hearing from anyone with any information.

Thanks, Diana

There is no Peter Sheffield death in Lincolnshire up to 2007 although he may (possibly) have died elsewhere.  Depending on how old he was back in 1971 he may still be alive in which case no info can be posted about him.  There appears to be a few "enthusiasts" around so perhaps contacting them may help you

Hi Diana

I'm not sure but it could be that his name was Thomas Peter Sheffield, theres an obituary in the Grimsby Telegraph of a Thomas William Peter Sheffield who died 28th October 2008 aged 87, might not be the correct one but you never know

That does sound more likely as it is the right area. Perhaps Diana's brother might recognise some of the family names.

Hi, I just looked at the obit and I think it is the right person.  He and his business were always know as Peter Sheffield, so that threw things out a bit.  My brother told me what his wife's name was and also his son,(which I know I can't mention here) and they match!  He didn't know about the daughters though.  So that is briliant - thank you so much!
