Great photos, they look very happy together. I do hope you can find Sid's name.

I wondered whether they might be buried together, though I'm guessing that cremation was more likely.

It seems that Butlins has an in-house archivist (and a nicely managed blog):

BARTRAM - Nottingham, Derby, originally Beds (Stagsden)
PERFETT - St Pancras & Marylebone, Rugby, Nottingham
RADFORD - Nottinghamshire, also back & forth to Bury
RUDD - Margate, Bermondsey, Newcastle, Nottingham

Rattus - It would have been helpful if Nan was buried with Sid, but she was buried her first husband (my natural Grand father,  so I think I will need to get up to Dagenham to view the electoral registers post 65 as that looks to be the only way I will find his name!

Dillybert - thanks for this link - It will become useful when (if!) I get Sid's surname

Cheers
