      NOTES & QUERIES:
      "I'm pretty sure my father knows about the still births... or, at least, one of them. Were they twins? He said that Lena had a still birth between his birth and David's, and he thought that David was a great relief after the trauma of the still birth."
      (Julian Edgoose 13.09.2007)
