I could have sworn the National Provincial was on the Ben Lomond side - just shows how memories can be faulty. I can help you with the opticians however - it was Conway. Tom Browne was his partner possibly. Dr Laydon’s wife Ruth was a member of the Conway family and the optician would have been her brother. Her two daughters, Bernadette and Mary also became opticians. Mary (now Mrs Hughes) still lives in Jarrow.
