Richard Dumville

The information for this page was provided by Richard Dumville, who is a grandson of George Dumville (1893-1964) and a great-great-great-great-grandson of Robert Dumville (c1767-1857). Richard Dumville has provided a considerable amount of information and photographs which we are gradually adding to the Web site. We first heard from Richard when he wrote to the Guest Book on 27th June 2003.
