Brilliant again, thank you. Yes, George was my great grandfather, married to Letitia. And I know about the German connection too but please do message me (probably best to keep this separate) with anything you have! I have only just found George and Letitia's unmarked grave at LRC thanks to Derek on here and have a grave marker being made up to mark the location. I'll speak again with dad's cousin (Adrian's son) and get some more info about the shop and the motorcycle racing history. Edited by member, 2nd Jul 2019 10:42 am

Neil, I looked on the newspaper site for Adrian Savage and the only one I came up with was one who was a boxer in the 1970’s and boxed for Triumph. Is he one of yours?

Hi Anne. No, Adrian (Ade as he was known) Yardley was one of my grandad's brothers. He ran the cycle shop in Paynes Lane. His son who I was with last weekend told me he was a huge motorcycle enthusiast and worked as a mechanic at races such as the TT for a famous local rider. I need to chase up the rider's name as I did not note it down.

I did used to drink in the 'Dog & Trumpet' now and again in the 80's - not far! Cheers
