This is an update on my original post of November 2008. I have recently discovered that Alan Ronald Cook mentioned in my original post was definitely my cousin, and died in Krakow Poland on 19th June 1943. I found this information on the internet, courtesy of the War Graves Photographic Project 2008. The information on his gravestone includes the names of his parents, Gladys Lydia Lavinia and Albert T (not Aubrey) Cook. Family information was that Alan was decorated for bravery in WW2, but I have since found that it was his father who won the DSM with bar in WW2.
