I am writing up his life in our locality as he and his wife are buried here in Tunbridge Wells. Has anyone a picture of him?

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
