Spire repairs to the Cathdral

This photo of Gordon Edwards was taken by my father Herbert Rendall, employee's of Sutherland the Plumbers who were repairing the Spire and Weather Cock of the Cathedral after they were damaged in I think the 1953 storms. The Cock after repairs and painting was displayed in Bain the painters window prior to being replaced on top of the spire.

Greetings from Australia. This is my uncle Gordon Edwards who was born in Brora, Sutherland in 1908 and passed away in Inverness in 1965. I am writing a memoir of my early years in Golspie and would like to use this photograph. Does anybody know where or how I can contact the copyright holder or the relevant Rendall family? With thanks.
