Thank you for indicating that I was on the right track, and for adding some further information of interest regarding the Roycroft family.
It's strange how a question like Malcolm T's, can suddenly stir up an ancient memory, and bring a name back to mind. During the latter part of my time at Fairfield, I spent some weeks as a Saturday morning helper in the Roycroft household. One of the tasks was to clean the dining room silver. On one occasion as I was cleaning an engraved salver, I commented on the fine quality of the workmanship. Mrs. Roycroft said it had belonged to her parents, and had been inscribed by a craftsman from Swansea. I can no longer recall the actual wording, but her family name stuck in my mind.
Your mention of the Roycrofts' visits to Killay House, where Sister Sybil Perrott LRAM, was in charge in the late 1960s, immediately cranked the memory process into action once more. Sister Sybil, when she first came to Harrogate in the early 1950s, acted as Sister Beth Heggie's 'second in command' at Rowanlea. It was during a time when I was receiving piano lessons. How she must have cringed at hearing me plodding through my practice exercises on the sitting room piano!
I also found your reference to Mr. Eric Ashmole interesting, particularly the fact that Mr. Roycroft's cars always came from the Ashmole car dealing business in Swansea. To my shame, I still remember being car sick en route to Whitby in Mr. Roycroft's black Austin, registration number - DCY 433.
What has impressed me most is, when adding Mr.Eric Ashmole's service with the NCH in Swansea to Pop Roycroft's long NCH service,and not fogetting that Brian Roycroft also played a pivotal role in child wefare in Newcastle, the effort and dedication that this one family has given over many years,to bettering the lot of disadvantaged children, is truly remarkable.
