Maxine Heath wrote that she had recently had the pleasure of revisiting Tarvin to lay flowers on Albert Ernest Bull's grave. Ernest was my grandfather and the family lived in and around Tarvin for many years. Ernest's wife, Mary Elizabeth, was of the Crank family, again from the Tarvin/Oscroft area. My father was a local builder and also owned Kingswood stores on the High Street. We left Tarvin in 1969.

I wonder if anyone has any photos or stories of members of the Bull or Crank families from this time? Any information will be gratefully received.
