Subject: RE: Folklore: Is this an urban myth?
My grandfather (mother's side) was never talked about at home. Years later, I think my aunt from NZ was over for a visit, it came out that she'd met him in Australia. It's a long way from Belfast/Crewe to Oz. I'd left home by the time my aunt came over so I have to go on what my sister told me years later. What led up to him leaving is not recorded.

As far as 'The stolen car with the body on the roof' story goes, I turned a variant of that into a song, "The 'New' Body Snatcher".
