Derek

It appears this is the spelling he used for his surname.
I note that his Will survives and it would likely show how he signed his name.

I have a good selection of pictures of the memorial now that the grounds around have been altered, not sure how I can post them.
I have kept a picture diary over the last few years if anyone would like a look.

It would be great if we could see the photographs of this over the years. Are they digital or printed?

Thanks
