Here is an excerpt from the article "YouTube: 'Doris Stokes — The Barbican 1986'": 

Vice-Admiral William Usborne Moore’s Glimpses of the Next State (1911) followed the publication of a book he wrote called The Cosmos and the Creeds.  He explained: “I began to feel misgivings as to my agnosticism regarding a future life, for I had not investigated the evidences of those who call themselves ‘Spiritualists.’”  His investigations would acquaint him with dozens of mediums and psychics and encompass three trips to America.  In the preface of the first of the two books providing a “record of investigation and spiritistic phenomena,” he observed:

To be brief, I found that the deeper I went into the study of Spiritism the more apparent it became that, whether he wished it or not, man’s individuality was not extinguished at death. I read books, visited clairvoyants, and attended séances for materialisation.  Through all I was constantly reminded of the existence of a near and dear relative, older than myself, who passed away thirty-seven years ago in the prime of her life.  Her continued reappearances could only lead me to one conclusion: I was being guided to a reconsideration of the problem of immortality. 

This relative is called in Moore’s books “Iola” — “a spirit name which she herself adopted to avoid the unpleasant complications that may arise as to her identity among those of her friends and relatives who are not educated in spiritism.”  Moore noted that “The word ‘spirit’ is used throughout [the book] as indicating a discarnate entity.  It is a loose term, but the one that is in general use, and therefore convenient.”  Iola manifesting in proximity to Moore would make evident the intelligence of the intermediary Force controlling the diverse phenomena that would become associated with the Spiritualism movement.
