David remembers Walter (“Wal”), who was a motor cycle fanatic.

Wal had about six children, who I last saw at Edie’s funeral and hadn’t previously seen for about 40 years. I’ll rummage around and see if I can find contact details for any of them.

3. Herbert Conway 7/3/1910 Wallingford .. cannot find in 1939 register.

David emembers Herbert (“Bert”), who at some stage conducted a military band. So far as cousins are concerned, Bert had a daughter, Penny, who emigrated to Canada and was several years older than me, so may no longer be alive.

4. Edith Conway 10/1/1912 Wallingford- 1992. . Edie remained a spinster and childless. In the 1939 Register she is a Civil Servent Counters Clerk & Telegrapher, living with her mother, Annie, in Sunbury. Edie treated me (David) with great kindness.  Years later, when I was about 12, she took me on my first foreign holiday to a small hotel in Dinard in Brittany.  Using my limited knowledge of French, we hired a couple of bikes with fat red tires, and the locals were treated to the sight of one large lady and one small boy pedalling against the wind along narrow coastal roads.  She died as Edith May Conway, b. 10/1/1912, on 12/1/1992 at 28 Westlake Gardens Worthing, probate not exceeding £125,000 ( but only sums larger than this seem to get noted, so she could have had less than £1000 I suppose)

5. Lilian Marjorie Conway 21/11/1915 Hertford. - June 2000 Croyden

6. Violet M Conway 22/8/1917 Sunbury Vi married Horace A Farley Staines Mar 1942, a member of an RAF Bomber crew.  He, sad to say, went missing in action, leaving a widow and a small daughter.Violet had a daughter, Margaret, b. Sraines Mar 1944 but we’ve lost touch..There might also have been a daughter Ethel born Staines Mar 1943m died the same quarter, but up in Salford!
