Dennis Christopher Sunderland –2003? [Heath 1963–1970]

Dennis was always affectionately known as ‘Big D.’ He was a good sportsman who played rugby and cricket and his record for the plunge at the swimming gala was never broken. He worked at Marshall’s, Southowram, for 26 years and latterly at S.G.L., Luddenden Foot.

He will be much missed by his wife, Gill, and family, and his many friends, to whom we send our condolences.

Thanks to Cynthia Darwin for the obituary.

I have only just found your site, but would very much like to include on your Obituary list my late father’s name and if possible my late grandfather, both of whom were pupils at Heath Grammar School.

My father was Robert James Talbot (October 1923–1974) and my grandfather was Frederick Joseph Talbot (March 1893–1970). However, I am not sure of the dates when they joined/left the school. They lived in Skircoat Green.

Kind regards,

Anne Archer (née Talbot)
