I was sorry to hear the news that James Brettell had passed away. Although I never met James, I was often reminded of the Brettell Family in Canada by my Great Aunts Flo and Mary on my visits to their home in Stourbridge, Worcestershire, England. My grandfather, Howard Brettell, was a brother of Hartley, James’s father. I have kept the photographs etc that Auntie Mary gave me of Hartley, his wife, sons and their families as I know she wanted me to keep alive her memories of the Brettells in Canada. I have attached photos of James - there is one with Auntie Mary! The very old one shows James’s Grannie & Grandad Brettell when they visited Canada in the 1920s. They had sailed on the Queen Mary and were at the Customs House, Montreal!
