A message from Jane Harwood for her uncle
"I do so wish that I had met you. My mother & the
rest of your brothers & sisters loved you so
much. We the Anstey family are a big family &
yet we have all heard the stories about uncle
Fred. You seemed to be such a lovely person & a
true gentleman.
You are all together now. My mum died on the
23rd July 2021, she was the youngest child (&
Fred the oldest son of a large group of
siblings. I expect you are having the wonderful
parties that we used to have with
Aunty Hazel playing the piano & everyone
singing."
