Dave Carrera Marble has appeared many times over the years, here are 4 threads which include it, perhaps you could send a personal message to any of the members who've mentioned the firm. Haven't read through all the posts but Bootle Lass (Doreen) says she had 2 cousins who worked there, might be a good place to start\/

Hello Dave

I read your post and was hoping someone new would come forward.

Hope you can remember whatever information my cousin Ken gave you.

Unfortunately Ken passed away this past year.

Good luck in your search.

Hi Dave, I lived in the Chapel House next door to the Carrara Works, 99, Balliol Road. I used to see the guys when I was leaving/coming home from work, I don't know the name John Basil Strain, sorry, but I do remember two names, John McKay and Joey Chapman, Joey lived on Stanley Road opposite the North Park, if you tried to find them maybe they can help you find John Basil Strain.
