Ian tells the author:
"That picture has been with our family since 1913 when the old butchers shop shut down and re-opened as an Ironmongers establishment, C.G. Willis and son.
It was later run by my Grandfather, Albert Thomas Willis having been the son of C.G. Willis.
Due to events in the 1st WW, the nephew of the original C.G. Willis was killed at Ypres on 1st Nov 1914 and just 11 days later my father was born at no.62 and ended up being named Cuthbert Gordon Willis in memory of his missed Uncle.
So he became the son in the name of the establishment.
