I have come across a photograph of a doorway with a plaque that reads
CRAINE & COPELAND
Business Transfer Specialists
Above this is another that reads
Unfortunatly there is no indication of the location of this door way and even less for the year.
The Copeland that springs to mind is Percy Alexander Ridgway Copeland who lived on the Island in Ramsey. Married to Florence loisa LACE.
Percy died 1976 and Florence died 1978 at Ramsey
Percy was brother to my grandfather Robert E. Copeland.
Is there anyone who can shed any light on the location / year
I know that Robert Copeland was on the island from 1914 to about 1924, Percy stayed longer had a break whilst he worked in London then returned to the island
