First of all, excellent work on the website -
you've obviously put a *lot*
of time into it, and it was fascinating to see the yesteryear section.
Let me explain my connection: my name is Andrew
Marshall, and I'm British
(although I live in the USA). My father, Haydn Marshall, was born in
Shirebrook in May 1912.
I know very little about my family (my father died when I was young),
I've been trying to do some research, but with little success from this
away. I'm looking for someone local in Shirebrook to do some digging
and I'd be more than happy to either pay for their time or make an
appropriate contribution to the charity of their choice if this would
better. Do you know anyone?
All I know is this:
My father, Haydn, was one of four brothers:
Charles, Aubrey, himself and
Dennis. Their father was a George Marshall, who ran a printing business
(and, I believe, a newspaper) in Shirebrook. On George's death in
Aubrey took over the business (which later failed). George was a
of a local orchestra, and I believe his wife (my Grandmother)'s name
Florence, who died in the 1940's.
Trust you can help, or point me in the direction
of someone who could.
Reply: I will endeavour to look into this for you and I will get back
you in the not to distant future.
As always if you want to see something
or make a contribution then
or post your comments.
Thank you: glenn.
