This biography was partly auto-generated by a GEDCOM import and partly by Charles' nephew Alan Runciman.
I can provide very few facts but what little I know may be worth providing for the benefit of someone in the future. Charles & Isabel didn't have family of their own and they took the decision to foster. So I think it would be in the late 1950s they fostered a girl. The girl's name was Vinnie (?) and if I recall correctly she would have been around 9 at the time she came to live with her new foster family. Charles & Isabel brought Vinnie to Glasgow to meet Charles' family. I have no clear recollection of when the arrangement came to an end but it continued for, I think, at least a couple of years and could have been longer. I have a handful of photographs featuring Vinnie, some including the family dog at that time too. It would be wonderful to reunite Vinnie to her photographs and of course to meet her again.
Charles was a Master Baker. He & his wife moved to the city Bristol, England, in the 1950s when the Tesco supermarket chain decided to introduce one of its first (perhaps the first?) in-store bakeries, at its Bristol store. Charles remained there for the rest of his working life.
