Ivor NovelloRenowned composer, one of the music industry's top awards is even named after him!
Connection: Born in Cardiff.
He was my grandfather's (or was it great grandfather, you know how family histories get confused) cousin! Born in Cardiff I believe. Mother (Dame?) Clara Davies, famous music teacher at the time. Clara's sister was Mrs Worthington (my great grandmother) of 'Don't put your daughter on the stage' fame - allegedly!
Ivor Novello was my great grandmother's great nephew. If there is anyone out there who is related please contact me using the free MessagePad service on this website
