SEEKING INFORMATION Ken Grundell and the New Mayfair Band at Hanging Heaton in 1946.

I am seeking information about Ken Grundell and the New Mayfair Band, which was a band of lads from the 1940s, I think. The pianist was my grandfather, Percy Cannings, and I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on where they performed and if they have any pictures.

I am not in the Dewsbury area any longer but can be contacted on rwarburton@hotmail.com.

I do have one sole picture which may jog the memories of the fine people of Dewsbury and the surrounding areas.

Here is the only photo I have of them in concert at Hanging Heaton in 1946.
