It is with sadness that we have learned of the death of George Knox, aged 92, Life Member of this Society. With his wife, Millie, George contributed greatly to the Society. They were in charge of our Stand at numerous Family History Fairs and were well known to other societies. Millie, who died in 2015, was our Secretary and George edited the Journal as well as overseeing the transcription of the 1891 census when it was released and he produced our first publications of transcriptions in booklet format. We miss them both and our sympathy goes to their family.
His Funeral service will be at Weston-super-Mare Crematorium on Monday February 26th at 11.00am. Family flowers only by request but donations in memory of George to Diabetes UK may be sent c/o L Bennett & Son Funeral Directors 9 Queens Rd Clevedon BS21 7TH. Tel 01275 875882.
