Desmond Francis Lake

His Father was Reginald Edward Lake born 1897 Leytonstone Essex. His Mother was Alice Lake. They also lived at 5 Burston Drive, Park St? St Albans, in the 50s. They then moved to Westcliffe-on-Sea Essex. Desmond married my mother Margaret Elizabeth Steeples in 1958 at Hognaston, Derbyshire. They were divorced in the early 60s. Desmond paid child maintenance for a few years and the cheques had a bank address in Surbiton. I think he subsequently re-married sometime in the early 60s. Reginald Lake my grand-father had four siblings Percy b 1886, Archibald b1888, Cyril b 1890 and Winifred b 1892. Their father was Henry John Lake b 1863 in Hertford Herts, and married to Martha Sauders b 1860 Buntigford, Herts. Parish of Aspenden.
