RON SOULS 1927-2005

 It was with sadness that we learned of the death of Ron Souls during 2005.

 Ron was born in Stourbridge and after leaving the RAF in 1948 he joined the local transport services as a bus driver. He was later promoted to inspector, then traffic superintendent and finally to Divisional Traffic Officer.


Ron was a long-standing member of the Sole Society. He had been researching his family for many years and discovered they came from Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. Ron was a 'regular' at our Annual Gatherings and always kept the Society informed of any new data he found. Our condolences go to his wife and family





I am sad to report that Trevor Saul passed away recently.


Trevor assisted greatly with the research into the Sauls at his native place of Preston and was particularly tenacious in finding information and trying to make sense of the earlier generations of his ancestors from the Garstang area. He took an active interest in the affairs of the Society and contributed several interesting articles to Soul Search. Trevor also kindly hosted in 2002 the meeting to set up the Saul Coordinators network.


I will miss Trevor and our regular telephone discussions and send my condolences to his family


John Slaughter
