Hello Stuart I was very pleased to see my parents listed on your site. There is one correction I would like to let you know of. My father died at age 72 in 1986, not 1996.

Thank you for the data you have collected. Is it possible to provide you with further details of my parents, George and Mavis Hubbuck? Yours sincerely Helen Jackson
