Forthcoming Meetings

April 19 2017

David Rose - The Wreck of the Lilly Bell II
This meeting in the quadrangle, room 28. Refreshments provided. David Rose will speak on "The Wreck of the Lilly Bell II". This was a US bomber which crashed in 1944 near Jacob's Well, SW Surrey, near Guildford. The talk will recount the lives of the four young airmen who were killed, & provide detail regarding the actual event & the research that built up the background to this tragic event. A memorial now stands near the crash site. This talk with a difference should prove an absorbing tale.

May 17

Kathy Chater - London Cemetaries & Burial Grounds
Kathy Chater will speak on "London Cemetaries & Burial Grounds". This is always a challenging area of research, given how many possible sites there are in the capital, many of which no longer exist. Kathy will give a broad overview, & an update on the new sources available to research. Finding a grave stone can open up new possibilities, providing names, dates & relationships not available elsewhere.

June 21

- A summer's evening walk
Midsummer Night's Eve.

7pm. Meet at Brookwood Cemetary for a guided walk around the London churches burial plots. Details to be confirmed nearer the time - please check with me first for final details. A small charge will be made to the Friends of Brookwood Cemetary, collected on the day.

September 20

Judy Davies - Yesterday's News
Judy Davies will speak on "Yesterday's News". This will cover early printing trades, examples from advertisements, old newspapers - & the latest on researching British Newspapers online. Finally we can access tales that may well identify our ancestors doings - hopefully showing them in the best possible light! Judy's animated talks are entertaining as well as informative - come & enjoy our opening of another season - there is always something new to learn.
