Hi Yvonne
Re your query about Jeff Ellison I can only tell you Jeff came to Reed in 1960 from Oliver Hart of Coppull I think that he and family lived at worslely hall area. he was a big fit six foot tall and I believe he only had one eye hope this has been of some help

Just to say my mum & dad we’re friends with Jeff Ellison and he used to call on them after Dad retired. He would call round in a very sporty Jag. My Dad Jimmy Dawber was a driver for Reeds for a long time.
