Tom Moore at County Fires is very helpful and did a grand job for us a couple of years ago. He's on the Mimram Estate.

Re: Halls family - Fordwich Rise

Are you on/still on Genes reunited? Certainly worth a crack. If, like me, you aren't anymore the GR facebook page might be a start. There used to be plenty of peeps there with access to the ER.
