Researching life of clock-maker

I AM researching the life of an amateur clockmaker who lived in Hastings all his life.

His name was Claude B Reeve and he lived at White Cottage, Downs Road. He died in 1978.

He made 40 clocks in his spare time; some were magnificent and won medals at the Model Engineering Exhibition in London over a period of 30 years. To date I have only been able to locate seven of his clocks.

Any help you could give towards locating anyone who knew Claude or who knows the whereabouts of any of his clocks would be very much appreciated.

If anyone has any information I should be pleased if they would contact me on 0114 274 5693, email malcolm@j-m-w.co.uk or write to me at 12 Norton Green Close, Sheffield S8 8BP.
