I visited Frodsham on Wednesday 5 April to look at the house built by my 4x great grandfather, John Urmson. (The Gables, 5, Main Street,) I was disappointed to find that the blue plaque outside the house has mis-spelled his name (Urmston,)and it is also spelt the same way on this site, and also with the addition of a final 'e' (Urmstone,). I don't wish to be too picky, but the name is Urmson. I have the original documents for the salt works he ran with William Crosbie, and also his will both of which confirm the correct spelling, and I would have thought that the F.H.E.G.S would have taken the trouble to get their facts right before they published an expensive blue plaque.
