The Co-op Bank

I know little (nothing?) about shares, the SE, grey markets etc.
I am interested in Co-op Bank shares and have a few questions:
Is it true to say that all Co-op Bank plc shares are held by the Co-op Group and cannot be bought by individuals?
Someone has said that they are traded on the "grey market" - how can that be? Who is buying and selling them? or is it just bonds which are being sold - and why on the "grey market"?
If the people who own the bonds which are to be converted to shares actually get shares - will they be shares in the Co-op Bank plc - and will they be able to sell them on the SE.
If I look at the page on the SE: CPBB CO-OPERATIVE BANK PLC 9.25% NON-CUM IRRD PRF #1

What has actually been traded in the "last 5 trades"?

It is being floated, allegedly by October
the grey market is just gambling. You aren't buying/selling real shares, just betting on next day/week/month's price

Some £60 million of 9.25% Preferred is listed and being traded.
That may be true for any yet-to-be floated Common.
