Husband In Longest Marriage Dies
Britain's longest marriage lasted 81 years. Frank and Anita Milford met at a YMCA dance in Plymouth, Devon, in 1926 - the year of the invention of penicillin. The couple married two years later. Frank Milford was 101 when he passed away.
Frank and Anita Milford had two children, five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. They would have become Britain's oldest married couple in February 2010.
The couple said the secret of their marriage was "give and take" and making up after rows with a kiss and cuddle.
