  • Lawrence I am a granddaughter of your oldest brother Harry. I have been researching your Bennett family for quite a few years, with having great difficulty in finding your family in England. Maybe you can help me from up above there in that special place you are resting. We never had the chance to me you. Am sure you would have been a gentlemen and fun loving as Grandpa, we all loved him dearly. We will never forget you. May you rest in peace. Love Pam & all your nieces and nephews
