“Crolla” is English, it can be an Italian last name or another anglicized foreign surname

I think this might have been Cooper’s great-grandfather.

I’ve found that “Crolla” family hails from the Province of Frosinone in Lazio region, where Peter Capaldi and Jim Capaldi’s ancestors (among others) came from. There has been a huge immigration from this area to U.K.
