The following information came from Ken Parker through Facebook

Ken said that he found our 1914 photo of Class C2 Dersingham School which includes his grandfather Walter Neave with his elder sister Eva Neave. They were the two children of Agnes Neave who ran a shop in Chapel Road.  His family always knew him as Cyril.

Ken also read the transcript of millenium interview number 14 with Sydney John Mitchel; he was brought up next to the shop where his grandparents were.

The photo below was kindly provided by Ken who said it depicts Mrs Neave with Eva and "Cyril" Walter; it was taken a few years after the school photo. "Cyril" was working at Sandringham as message boy for the Prince of Wales. From the census record below I presume that the gentleman in the centre is head of family, Walter Neave, but as of yet the gentleman in uniform is not identified.

The 1911 census page below shows the Neave family with Walter as the father and the lad as "Cyril" aged 10. However, the Civil Registration records show his full name to be Frederick Walter C Neave (presumably the C stands for Cyril), registered in the first quarter of 1902.

The young man in the picture married Ethel M. Daniels in the second quarter of 1924 in the Docking Registration District.

In 1931 he was appointed to a situation with the Post Office and this is from the record book for 5th February 1931.
I believe he died with this full name name of Frederick Walter Cyril Neave in the first quarter of 1966 in the Registration District of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk with the probate record in the Calendar of Wills confirming the C to be Cyril; this also shows that he died at 2 Highbury Crescent, Bury St Edmunds on 27 February 1966 with probate granted 2 May 1966  to his widow Ethel Maud Neave (estate valued at £885).
