A number of these photos are thanks to Sue Topham and family. Her uncle was Terry Norman who published our Denmead and Hambledon book, now reduced to £5.00.
Sue found some photos and documents belonging to her grandfather, Gerald Restall, who died on 12th December 1974 and his wife. I’ll aim to add what I can over time, but I am particularly busy with updating the Jubilee Trail and planning other events with the Committee to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles and his wife Camilla.
THE RESTALL FAMILY
Some letters and postcards to or from the Restalls – note the dates and that Denmead was considered part of Cosham in days gone by! In no particular date order.
Walter Restall was married to Hannah Louise. Sue thinks she might have been the Louie in correspondence.
