My dad, Roy Arthur Grimsley was born on the 7th of October 1944 in Cavendish, Suffolk. He suffered from TB at an early age, spent some time in a TB Sanitarium, and as a result couldn't finish school. He attended, at the time, Clare Secondary Modern, which became Clare Middle School, a school which I myself attended.

He worked from about age 14 for Pamela Matthews at Cavendish Hall as a gardener, and had a variety of jobs throughout his lifetime. He always liked to garden though, and had something of a green thumb, something he passed on to my brother Ryan Grimsley.

He met my mother Patricia Grimsley in Carlisle, Cumbria, in a nightclub, where he infamously asked for Brown Ale and got given a Blue Nile.
