David and May married in April 1919. They had one child, a daughter, born May 1920. They built their house in Beckenham and lived there for the rest of their lives. The house has remained the home of their descendants.

When David died aged 92 ½ the house and contents passed, by deed of family arrangement, to David’s and May’s granddaughter. The house is now owned by the granddaughter and great-granddaughter.

All the original documents that appear in this book were found in the Beckenham house by their granddaughter, including those that had been posted to New Jersey, USA.

The houses at 18 Manor Road, Beckenham and 56 Ramsden Road, Balham still exist.
