Alfred Baker's wife (presumably) in the list in 1955 is shown as Catherine. Also at the address was one Eugene John O'Callaghan-a lodger or an in-law? (see https://www.ancestry.co.uk/imageviewer/collections/1795/images/40020_636672_1715-00051?ssrc=&backlabel=Return)

Presumably an in-law, as A A Baker married Catherine O'Callaghan in Willesden in 1940.

I believe J Hunt of Glossop is called James but I havenít found anything on the web that confirms it yet. Iíll have a look through the local archives

You are right ..... and maybe wrong!!!

There were two J. Hunt's in Derbyshire in the early 50's

James W. "Jim" Hunt was in Matlock and later became a F.L. referee and moved to Portsmouth

The other one that I am chasing lived in Glossop, did not progress beyond F.L. line level, and had no second initial

Any help much appreciated

Nothing in the local archives John, will have to go further afield..

According to a report of Falmouth v Oxford in the FA Cup in the Daily Mirror for 5/11/62, S Yates of Bristol (by then a full list ref) was called Stan, but I haven't confirmed that independently.

John - Iím having no luck whatsoever in locating the name of Mr Hunt. I have located several programmes but they only list him as J Hunt. The local archives have no records nor do the county archives/
I have a list of people interred at Glossop cemetery and there are a few hunts on there so will have a look through and see if any match the timeframe he would have been on the list
