Research, and this site,

Even such a modest piece of research as this would have been impossible without the help and support of many people. As well as many members of the immediate family, I would like to mention the following people without whom much less would have been achieved:

Brian Liddy, of the National Museum of Photography, Film and TV.

Chris Pond, Chairman of the Loughton and District Historical Society.

Howard Knight, keeper of the Marriage family genealogical records.

W. Gill of Woodford Photographic Society.

Helen Hills of Cambridge University Library.

David Leonard, Hon. Archivist, The Mount School

As the work has continued over decades, many of these people have moved on, or even, sadly passed away.
