    Notes 
    • Dorian Stedman, December 2013:

      "Despite being my grandfather and living within 20 miles of my house I only met the man 3-4 times. He worked as a bank manager (Barclays, if I remember) in the north Oxford suburb of Summertown, at some point after the second war ( I think bank managers were protected jobs and he wasn't conscripted) he ran off with his secretary at work (Joyce Faulkner).

      "The divorce date is unknown as Audrey never admitted to divorcing him, it certainly wasn't straight away and may have been several decades later. The story goes that his tax advisor told him that he would be way better off financially if he actually got divorced, so he finally did it. As you can tell, this guy was not that great. There was no official settlement and Audrey got their old house on the Woodstock Road in Oxford as reparation.

      "Eric moved to a house out of town on the north side of Oxford, almost to Blenheim, died there. He was notoriously tight with his money, I suspect he had pots of it in his will, and left it all to Joyce (I need to pull the will - any ideas where I would find it?).

      "I sent her a letter after the funeral asking if she had old photos etc of his family, I never got any reply. i met her several times and she seemed nice enough, not nice enough to ever reply to me though.

      "I spent several summers with Audrey as a child and she was the sweetest, kindest lady you would want to meet, loved crosswords, scrabble and Miss Marple mysteries."
