Information I inherited, when I took on the task of compiling the Societies Concert programmes suggests that the Society was founded in 1865 almost 150 years ago which is what is prompting the query. It may even have been at an earlier date than that. Does anyone have any information about this matter? Or can anyone suggest where I should start looking. AlbertWm.

I wonder if you would be able to tell me whereabouts (plot No) in Milton Road cemetery my Husbands uncle, Ronald P.G.Staples, is buried. He was born in 1919 and died, aged thirteen, in 1932. We have found other family member graves there but not his. The Staples family kept a shop and dairy furthur along in Milton Road and later lived at Manor Farm, Worle.

My grandparents were from WSM. I have lot's of info about my grandmother, Brydah Rose Rattle, and her family. I can't find anything about my grandfather, Joseph Harold Fredericks (born approx. 1890) a dentist, but his father died before he was born, in South Africa fighting in the Boer War. I believe his mother's maiden name or step father's surname was Midgley. This is the second name of my aunt, Roma Midgley Frederick ( born 1915, now deceased). My father, Harold Paul Frederick, was born in Oct 1913 in Pontypridd, Wales before his family emigrated to Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
