Dear Janet,
The Society does have information, although limited, about EBB's parents. You need to contact our Record Keeper, Mary Rix, for the information. You can find her on the "About Us" page from the header above.
Was EBB a Chemist, with a shop in Westcliffe on Sea? If so, I visited him at his bungalow, in Shoeburyness before he died. If I am on the track of the correct person then I will write a little more. Michael.

Well Janet,
A bit of explanation first.
I completed my National Service in 1953 in the Barracks at Shoeburyness but my Battery of the Royal Artillery, No. 194, was housed in the huts across Campfield Road from Horseshoe Barracks.
I then went to a civilian job at The Proof and Experimental Establishment (P&EE) where I met and married a Southend girl.
Many years later I mentioned to my Mother in Law that, as a Member of the Bunting Society, I was going to visit EBB at his bungalow in Shoebury. She believed that she knew him from the time when he had a Chemist's Shop in Westcliff and requested that I should confirm this information. Which I duly did. This must have been about 18 months before he died and he was a widower.
I took a video camera and a tripod stand with me and somehow, accidentally, managed to break one of the light green shades on his triple, overhead light. He was very kind about my carelessness and did not want me to pay for the damage and he went on to tell me about his life in Essex.
I showed this recording at one of the Society's AGMs in Alpheton and I still have it somewhere!
If you let me know by e-mail direct to me if you have a VHS Video Tape Recorder or a DVD player then I will try to make a copy of the original for you.
I did try to visit EBB again only to discover from a neighbour that he had gone into Rochford Hospital. When I enquired there he already died.
Not quite the answer to your question about his parents but something of his family history which I hope you can enjoy.
Michael.

Dear Janet and Dave,
Probably a final comment from me.
I was doing my bit for the One Name Study by collecting the names and dates of Bunting wills at the London, UK, Probate Registry in High Holborn where copies of the post 1858 wills and grants of probate may be obtained.
During the search today I came across the reference to the will for Edwin Brooks Bunting and wondered if you were interested in it? The Registry make a UK charge of 5.
Not that a will is likely to give much of a clue about his parents names but there might be sufficient clues about any modern beneficiaries who may know about them.
Michael.
