Well Linnell, I think you are probably right!

Hi San, I am sure you are right, an unusual name, must be him. There are a lot of names I recognised on there, there are a couple of Alfred Willetts, we have a lot of them, luckily a lot of their parents names are also mentioned, so we may be able to link some of them up. Wasn't it all terrible though when you stop to think about it :!: Best Wishes from Linell.
