- Hi this is incorrect Dad has 2 other grandchildren -my children Sara Amy McKie and James Antony McKie. Their names were left off by my nephew Michael Cranstoun due to the fact I am estranged from the family. My father loved Sara and James and one of our happiest memories is our trip to invercargill when his sister died. Dad would be horrified to know Sara and James were ignored. I think the fact they were missed shows Michael really didn't know Dad at all Public - Christine - Child - 25 October 2017 - Family history - family tree

Leave a tribute or memory of
Lloyd Cecil Cranstoun
As we approach another ANZAC day and another year without our grandfather, I wanted to note how amazing this man was. He was kind, thoughtful and one of my memories (which there are many) was when I was approx 12 years old and I told him I would have a Ferrari one day and his response was I believe you will have that Ferrari. He believed in me and never demeaned anyone. This man was truly one in a million. He is still very much missed.
