Frederick William Rudkin was my grandfather. His wife was Ruth (nee Havill) who I think died in 1991. As far as I know they had seven children; Gerard, Ernest, Nola, Leone (my mother), twins Nancy and Margaret and Amy. At this time, as far as I am aware, the surviving children are Ernest, Nola and Amy. Ruth Nathan
