  3. Poll Poll: Spring Competition - AND THE WINNER IS....

    Over the years of researching, I have had the opportunity to visit many graveyards and cemeteries. I love reading the inscriptions on the graves – some are poignant, but others show that a sense of humour lurked beneath the sadness. This competition is about the latter. This is your...

  5. Mutley's Competition

    I know the Judge's decision is final but the answer to Q1 may be as contentious as the one to Q2! :) When I saw the answer to Q1 I thought where has that hyphen come from? I knew there had been some family hoohah over surnames because Trafford, George’s brother, used the surname Leigh-Mallory....
