Not so much a query, more I have information which might help someone.

I have the original page of the Clevedon Mercury newspaper featuring my maternal grandfather's funeral details - it is dated 2 June 1945. It is a little worn around the edges now (like me!) but still very readable. 

Whilst looking at the page the other day I noticed there were two other funeral details featured there. 

One was for ALFRED MARK DYER of 17 Council House, Claverham who died aged 48.

The second is for ERNEST ARTHUR (TOM) PALLENT of 169 Old Street, Clevedon - apparently he used to work at Hales Cake Factory, Clevedon. 

Just wondering if these names mean anything to anyone.  If so, there is a whole list of relatives which might help someone.

What a helpful post for anyone researching DYER or PALLENT.  As far as I can see Alfred Mark DYER was born 21st June 1896 at Felton, Winford.  Ernest Arthur PALLENT was born 27th Feb 1900 in Bristol; he was buried at All Saints Clevedon and according to the 1939 Register was the General Manager of a Cake Factory - Hales?
