Hello,
I would like to find some info on Bevan Ashton or Herbert Morgan Bevan Ashton B. 1874 Devon,England. Bevan died in Banff and buried in the Banff Cem in 1940 along with his wife Marion in 1943. Bevan was a Masseur in banff around 1905-1940. What I would like to know if he was employed by the Bannf hotel or if he had his own shop or ran a spa??? Also if there is an obit for both of them. They had one son Phillip Bevan Ashton, B 1909.

Thanks for your help
Regards
Cathy

Hi Brian,
Thanks for getting back to me so soon. Could you tell me if this sanitarium was for people that had TB? Would you be able to send me a picture of the building? Could you find an obit for Bevan Ashton who died in 1940 in Banff? This article you sent me is just fantastic. Any other info would be great too.
Regards
Cathy
