Daisy Gandy 1926-2009

Daisy married Ken Scott in 1949 at Luke’s Church in Farnworth. Some  years ago I had contact with Ken Scott. They lived in Birchfield Road, Farnworth at the time, after he retired as a chemical engineer. Ken and his sister Joyce Tunstead in Dublin did an enormous and impressive job with the family trees for the Gandy family in Widnes and Cheshire.
