There's only one Roy Murphy, of his age, listed on this years electoral roll. He is shown to be living off Gidlow Lane in Wigan with wife Barbara.

Hi Hsa 92531 I am so sorry to hear the sad news, and so sorry it has taken me so long to search for him. I have just posted a letter to 12 Gillan RD, Hoping to find him. If you could possibly retrieve the letter for yourselves as it has printed photos of his dads, your grandfathers grave in Arrezo in Italy, i visited a couple of years ago you may want to keep them yourselves. It also has my e-mail address if you wish to contact me, i would like to see a photo of him at any age, is his wife still living there, i would love to hear about you both.i have lived in Australia with my family for the past 25 years thanks for the message. Stephen Halliwell
