Trustees Minutes

August 1859 to March 1955

Transcribed by:

M Rostron and M Hough


Whilst researching the growth in size of the Trust’s property from 1703 we came across the old Minute Book which was found to contain some useful information.

Particularly the 1859 gift of a piece of land by Mr C J Darbyshire, which he had purchased from the trustees of the late Roberts Andrews Esq, to extend the burial ground and references in 1912 ands 1914 to the encroachment of hen pens onto part of the 1859 gift.

A5 Booklet

The cost of the A5 booklet is £3.00 plus P&P (£1.50 UK, for other areas of the world please enquire)
