Who makes up the U.K. branch of the Davis family ?

We obviously represent only a very small number of people carrying on the DAVIS family surname. However, family trees have to start somewhere ! (Click on The Members above to find out more) So, please stop by again, and thank you for your interest !

Memoriam: Just over a year after this photograph was taken, my mother Marian was most unfortunately diagnosed with cancer. Despite immediate medical attention, and an incredibly brave and courageous fight back by herself, she passed away on the 13th January 1980. To the very end, and as with the way that we shall always most fondly remember her for the devoted way that she cared for her family throughout her tragically too short life, all she ever thought about was the well being of her family. Her husband Albert, and two sons Jonathan and Simon, always came first. She was a truly most remarkable woman of courage.

This part of our Davis family website is dedicated to the memory of my late father, Albert Solomons Davis, who volunteered to fight for his country during W.W.2, and served in a R.A.F. "Fighter Command" Hurricane squadron, until being invalided out by debilitating injuries received in the line of duty, and awarded an honourable discharge. He never made a full recovery, and was later to suffer from chronic heart disease, and having to endure not just open-heart surgery, but also the tragic loss of his wife and our mother Marian from cancer.  Despite all of these terrible hardships, he was at all times a most wonderful husband & father. Following a second, but alas unsuccessful further heart operation, he sadly passed away on the 2nd July 1985.
