Pamela Ann Payne was born to my grandparents Frederick and Ellen in 1940. Pam was a twin but her sister Freda only lived to be three days old. Freda’s death certificate states she was a premature twin born at seven months.
Both from Bedfordshire, Pam married Richard Wade (known as Dick) in Biggleswade in 1962. My cousins, Steven and Paul were later both born in Luton, Steven in 1963 and Paul in 1965. Pan and Dick subsequently moved to Cheshire where they lived for the rest of their lives.
Dick played bass guitar in bands throughout is life but he played the accordion too and can be seen at the back of the float in the photo below.
