Very interesting thread, I live in Formby ( just up the road from Crosby!) Yes Percy French is buried here, but the interesting bit is that my wife's Uncle & Aunt lived next door to George & Beryl in Mains Lane, Singleton but Goerge was never allowed to visit on his own. Beryl was very jealous ( not without good cause I believe) she was also very tight on the purse strings and doled out his pocket money. Just referring to the ' racist ' bit, I don't think he knew the meaning of the word!! as many of us didn't long ago!!
