Harry Percy Pask (1904-1954)

This information relates to the main Suffolk tree - descendants of John & Mirabel Pask née Sparrow, born c1680 who lived in Wickhambrook, Suffolk.

Recently Jo Pask from Suffolk forwarded a photograph, kindly provided by Edna Yvonne Copus. Edna's parents were friends of Harry & Alba Pask née Voss. The photograph was taken at a Masonic Ladies' Night c1950s.

Harry Percy Pask was the son of George Stephen & Lavinia Pask née Dawson, and great-grandson of Oliver & Sophia Pask née Suttle. He was born in Acton in 1904, and sadly died at the age of 50. In 1929 he married Mabel Voss. I assume that she did not like the name Mabel, and called herself Alba. They had two sons:
  1. Michael J. Pask who died in infancy in 1932.
  2. Brian G. Pask who was born in 1934, and also died at the young age of 45.
This information will be included in the next website update.
