Hi uncle mick,

I am still researching the death.

I think that Alan died in 2008 but I am not sure, at this stage, if his wife, June (ne Gillespie), is still alive.

I think that Kenneth is still alive and his wife is called Andrea (ne Andrea M Dickinson). They may live in North Yorkshire.

My source for the death was through the Leeds branch of NARPO (National Association of Retired Police Officers). Unfortunately, there are often errors on the site and Raymond's death is shown with two different dates. I am wondering if 'Andrea', named on the site as next of kin, is in fact Kenneth's wife (or maybe they had a daughter called Andrea).

I will continue to research for further information but Pauline Brown may know more about the family and who 'Andrea' is.

Ian
Thanks Ian

Sad news, indeed.
Thank you, so sad, he will be greatly missed. I joined the police force in 1972 and he helped me so much, someone to respect and learn from.

Hi yes both sons, my cousins Alan and Billy have sadly passed away which is why we have had difficulty making contact with the family. Kenneth "Billy" was named after my father James Kenneth Ward, Raymonds brother. Uncle Ray was so proud that I had followed in his footsteps into the police and now my son, his great nephew serves in Gloucestershire Police force.

So sad to hear as I was great mates with "Billy" at Cockburn, when did he pass away ??
On a lighter note a little tale, Billy & myself had tickets for the FA cup 6th round Crystal Palace v Leeds on Sat 6th March 1965,it was postponed & rescheduled for the Wednesday of course our parents said we couldn't go as it was a school day.

On the Tuesday we set off hitch hiking down the A1 got to London & finished up sleeping in the basement of a block of flats courtesy of some kids we met down there. We had telephoned home & my mum who was in touch with the Leeds United chairman Harry Reynolds told us to meet him at the players entrance where he provided us with tickets for the game & money for the train fare home

Welcome to Secret Leeds Catherine.

It is unclear who you wish to talk to but as you may have noticed Iansmithotley. JMA and Uncle Mick are recent contributors to the thread albeit off the original topic they also contributed to. The original poster, the station cat, however has not signed into the site in almost 3 years. So in managing expectations if it is he/she you wish to contact then that should be taken into consideration. Of course as you have probably discovered sign in isn't required to read so it could be he/she may be "lurking"
