The family of a 61-year-old man who was born in Saffron Walden are appealing for information about his friends following his death last month.

Andrew Selby died at home on August 29 after a long struggle with illness.

He was the third child of Alec Selby, who was a teacher at Newport Free Grammar School – now known as Joyce Frankland Academy – and Shirley Selby, who taught at the RA Butler Infants School.

Mr Selby was born in Saffron Walden on December 13 1956, and was brought up in the town.

He went on to attend the Boys British School between 1961 and 1967 and his family are hoping past pupils may remember him.

His sister, Carolyn Coleman, is also trying to track down Mr Selby’s partner while he was living in Cherry Hinton after a scooter accident.

Mr Selby eventually returned to Saffron Walden while his parents were both living there, but following a cancer diagnosis he started to decline.

He had no children but supported many local causes and led the campaign to save local pub, The Axe.

His funeral will be held on September 20 at the Cambridge Crematorium at 10.45am.

Anyone seeking further information or who knew Mr Selby should contact 01362 695084.
