This famliy was quickly pulled together after another Guild Newswatch watcher sent me a copy of a thankyou notice from the Basingstoke Gazette of 6th September 2012. In this notice, the family were thanking everyone who sent messages, donations and attended the funeral for Lilian May Gammon. A little trawling on the internet found me a little information on Lilian and her husband Dennis who lived in the Witchurch area of Hampshire. Using the marriage and birth indexes, I found Denis's father Cecil Gammon, and Cecil's wife Kathleen Downer. The only likely birth for Cecil was some distance away from Hampshire in Elham, Kent.
I hope I have not jumped to another family here! If anyone connected to the family can confirm this or knows something different, then please get in contact with me.
Anyway, the parents of this Cecil Gammon appear to be Frederick Gammon (born about 1849 in Swingfield, Kent), and Elizabeth Daniels Tupper. I found this family in the 1901 census, and the 1911 census. Without knowing who Frederick's parents were (and I could get his father at least from Frederick and Elizabeth's marriage certificate), I could not be certain of the right Frederick in earlier English censuses.

After being sent an extract of the Basingstoke Gazette of 26th April 2012 containing a funeral notice for Dennis Arthur Gammon, I have added the extra information, added a descendant report below, and provided a link to the BASI family Tree.
