WARRINGTON man Victor Tann is also keen to celebrate the centenary of Mr Grayson’s election.
His grandfather, Jack Tann, worked on the election campaign in 1907 while living at Cowlersley. Mr Tann was a great admirer of Mr Grayson and even named his son Albert after him; Mr Grayson’s full name was Albert Victor.
Albert went on to name his son Victor after the politician.
Mr Tann, 68, said he knew little about his family’s connection with Mr Grayson until a friend’s aunt gave him an original poster from the 1907 campaign.
Since then he has collected books, pamphlets, papers, a letter from Mr Grayson’s daughter and one from his wife to Keir Hardie, asking for a loan to help them avoid eviction while her husband was ill
He also found three photos featuring his father, grandfather and other relatives.
Mr Tann said: “I am not really interested in politics, but I have become interested in Victor Grayson and what he did. With it being the centenary of the election, I thought I would share my family connection.”
