Subject: Olympian Ran Laurie

I collect the rowing career of W.G.R.M (Ran) Laurie, who rowed for Cambridge in the 1930s, and won a gold medal at the 1948 Olympics in London.

As part of this, I am trying to make a physical tribute to him, for the collection, and am looking for items and information for this project. I am hoping to make a trip to the UK in the not too distant future, to further my goals, but am first trying to gain as much information as possible.

I understand that Dr. Laurie died in Hethersett on September 19, 1998, and I am wondering if anyone might know where he was buried, or where any records of such things might be located. It was my understanding that he was living in this location with his second wife at the time of his death, although for many years he had worked as a GP in Oxford. I would very much like to visit his grave, and to pay homage to the man who has had a profound effect on my life.

If anyone has any information, photos, or anything that may help me with my research, or in determining where I need to go if I am able to visit, I would be most grateful. I have collected many things toward making the tribute, but still have a few areas yet to cover.
