Last year, Ken Haywood published his book, The Lost Men of Bishopthorpe, about the lives – and deaths – of the men on the local War Memorial from both conflicts.
In a talk at Bishopthorpe Methodist Hall, Ken will be concentrating on the men who served during the First World War. In doing so, he will describe some of the problems he encountered and use practical examples which, in turn, may help with your own WW1 ancestry research.
The talk starts at 7.30pm at Bishopthorpe Methodist Hall on Tuesday, 16th October 2018.
Hosted by Bishopthorpe Local History Group. Free to members. Non-members welcome: £3.50, including light refreshments.
Just looking up some family history and found GH Simpson. So pleased to put a face to the name. I have his war medals and would happily provide a photo if you are interested. One of hos medals was the Military Cross.
