  • I think the bungalow must have been called Fressingfield because that’s where my ancestors came from in Suffolk. I know my father Thomas Cook lived there for a while before moving to Ash Road.

  • David Cook,

    Do you know what your ancestor, Thomas COOK (son of Frederick COOK) did during the Great War?

    I believe he was on the Island at that time, and had actually signed up in 1914. I assume R.H.A. but cannot be sure, and I do not know his Regimental Number.
