Kettleborough, Keith My mother, Verlie was born in 1903 to Lavinia Kingswood, nee Kettleborough and always told me she was related to Keith.
My cousin and I are interested in discovering any anecdotal information relating to Ivy Kettleborough, later Ivy Kingswood born in 1897 and who left home in Mansfield around 1911 to stay, we believe, in Lincolnshire with relatives.

Kettleborough , Keith I've just come across this website and am quite devastated to read of Keith's death six years ago. I didnt known until just today while reseacrhing into the Sheffield United teams of the 50s and 60s. I was a colleague of Keith's at Birkdale School until July 1994 when I retired and have very happy memories of working with him on the sports field, not just at soccer but cricket (which he was also good at!) and other activities. I also taught his sons there. He was a lovely bloke, very kind and good with the boys at the school.
