Posting on Facebook, a spokesperson for Matlock SNT said: “We are trying to identify whether there are any members of family of this gentleman still living in Matlock to get this wallet back to them as it contains some rather interesting and old memorabilia.

“Does anyone know of a Cyril Adkin or Jill Adkin that used to reside at Victoria Court, Matlock?

"If anyone feels that they may know of any family members please send us a message.”
