15 Agrees - 'ages', with 're'/about.
4 D Already - a+lad+re/note+y/unknown.

I can't remember 6 A - do you have any letters? That might jog my memory!

Are you sure of the d? (I don't have the crossword and there may be conditions I don't know about) Ole is a cry of approval reversed (mounting) gives Elo + in giving eloin an "antique" word for "take away" or carry off?

Thanks ab - yes it is eloin but the "O" is a clash so changes to ELDIN in the grid.
All sorted now - many thanks!
