Denys Crews obituary

Guild member Audrey Town has kindly sent me another obituary which she spotted in the Yorkshire Post:
Died peacefully on May 13th 2009 aged 95 years. Loving Husband of Gundred, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather and Friend of many. Memorial Service at St Mary's Priory Church, Old Malton on June 4th at 2pm. Family flowers only. Donations to R.N.L.I.
I've established that Denys was born in the June quarter of 1914 in the Brentford Registration District in West London. He was the son of Ernest Kingwell Crews and Louise J Pilgrim who married in Kensington, London, in the June quarter of 1913. This seems to be another West Country Crews line as Ernest Kingwell Crews was born in the December quarter of 1886 in Stoke Damerel, Devon.

Since posting the news of Denys Crews's death I have discovered that an obituary was published somewhat belatedly in The Times which can be read online here:

A brief obituary was also published in the Daily Telegraph which does not appear to be available online. I have scanned the obituary and can send copies on request to interested researchers.
