36. Entirely thanks to Upton: T G Pikett
37. Kelvin Morton - not the same county as above, but the same county as the prvious one (probably) in alphabetical order which would be
19. Aubrey Moore.
43. S J Kayley. Would Kylie perform at a ceilidh? (in Whisky Galore a ceilidh was taken to refer to a bar of Caley's chocolate, a brand not many of us remember.

I don't know how I came to have Mr Pikett for 36 - the clue I had solved was 44. More marbles lost, it seems.

36. Should have been J Powell.
