Reginald Mattingly was the solicitor of my grandfather, Charles Edward Warren and also named in his Will as one of the Trustees of his Estate and potential guardians of his infant children in the event of his death. Mattingly became a partner in Deacon, Harston and Shenton on 7 March 1924 according to the Government Gazette. He had previously been with Deacons (which I think was a different company). His father, Frederick Mattingly was a solicitor in London.
