Edie Cumpston contacted me about her husband's family connections.  She wrote:


'His father was Lennard Wesley Cumpston and his mother was Lorraine. She died in childbirth and Leonard married Una Linus


He has 2 sisters, Jill and Anne.  I do have some family history in a family bible.   I think his grandfather's name was Lidgett .'
