Raymond Daniels was my Grand Uncle on the paternal side of my family tree.
Raymond was married at least twice. He was married to Joan Croft, & to Joan Cross whom he married in October 1980 in Weymouth, Dorset, England.
My memories of Raymond Daniels.
I remember meeting Raymond many times when I was younger. I believe he stayed with us on a few occasions when I lived in Fareham, Hampshire, England.
When Raymond was getting married once, my father & I were staying with his brother Ivor & his wife Marge for the wedding on Portland. I remember the morning of the wedding there were lots of people all over the house. There was a wedding car parked outside ready to go to the Church & Raymond came in looking a bit flushed. He asked Ivor if he could speak to him privately & everyone left so they called talk. All that is except my dad & I, Ivor told his brother that we should stay & listen to what he had to say. Raymond then confessed that he couldnt get married as he was still married to someone else. He had married years before & not got divorced. As you can imagine there was uproar when the family found out, the poor lady he was supposed to marry in the next hour, lived opposite Nunk & Marge. The wedding was swiftly called off. I cant remember what happened next, but I will always remember Raymond for this reason.
