  • Hello Valerie, How amazing to see this photo, and to see myself at the age of 6. Also to see my granny. Do you remember my mum and dad Doris and Ted Burford? Sadly my dad died in 1975 and my mum in 2010.

  • Hello Jennifer,
    Yes, I remember you ( a quiet and shy girl) and I remember your family. With regard to the photo I do know that Ann Glennie lives in Suffolk, Sylvia and Jean Pullen, Steve Fryer and myself still on the Island. Derek Hall lives in Rayleigh. But sadly looking thru the photo a lot no longer with us. Nice of your response.

  • Hello Valerie Lots of the faces are very familiar. We lived in Central Ave. near to Lunns Stores. Mum and Dad Milly and Ron Crickmay have sadly passed away. Your brother Trevor used to play with my Cousins Robert and Royce from London.

  • Hi Jennifer, nee Burford, my name is Margaret Stevens, nee Pollock. We used to play together and our mums and dads were great friends. I lived at Rosemary on Somnes Ave when it was just a track and remember coming round to your house in Central avenue to play. Sorry to hear that Teddy and Doris have passed. My dad George died in 1998 and my mum Lily in 2012. I live in Elmswell near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. I recognised a lot of the names in the coronation photo. Great memories.
