William & Maud Pask née Phillips of Hargrave

This information relates to a currently unidentified main branch of the family with roots in Suffolk.

Rose Beadle has been writing to us over the last few days. Her mother was a close friend of the Pask family who ran the Post Office & general store in the centre of Hargrave, Suffolk. Next door was a pair of semi-detached cottages; Rose's grandparents lived in the first, and Laura Pask in the second.

Rose's mother was bridesmaid at the marriage of Laura Irene (Nene) Pask to Frank Morley in 1945 in Bury St. Edmunds registration district.

Rose has kindly provided the photographs of both Nene's wedding, and also her sister Kathleen Susannah Pask to William G. Hunt in 1937.

Laura Irene (Nene) Pask was the bridesmaid, next to the Bride. Their father William Pask, known as "Woodbine Will", was standing between his two daughters.

Currently we are unable to identify specifically their parents - however they are believed to be William & Maud Pask née Phillips. We have ordered Kathleen's birth certificate to confirm this.

In addition, they had a son Alec W. Pask, who was born 1916, and believed to have died in 1960 in the Norwich registration district.

If anyone has additional information on this family, we would be very interested. Many thanks to Rose for her information that has helped us group this family.
