Bassett Gizzey Family - a Memory of St Day.

My mum was born in St Day, her mother was Annie Bassett and she married Antonio Gizzey. I was told he used to work in the mines and he made ice-cream. They had 4 children, Jane, Helena, Gwen and Harry. My mum was Helena (Lena), born in 1916. We used to go there nearly every summer for our holidays and I loved it. My cousin Margaret Tucker still lives there. My mum used to live opposite The Vogue Sleuth, but I don't know what street that was in.
If anyone knows of the family I would love to hear from you.
