Personal Web Pages


Welcome to our web pages. There are several pages here dealing mainly with genealogy and specifically the families in our own lines. Also there are various pages which hold historical information which has been gathered over a period of time and may be useful to other resarchers of family history.

These pages are intended to be informative, some times light hearted, but to reflect ourselves. Below are various descriptions of what is available here in a brief overview.

Roll of Honour site - lick to go there

The Roll of Honour site started as a small project transcribing and documenting a few war memorials in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire which contained family members. Gradually more and more memorials crept into the various sites being maintained.

With the help of several people initially the transcription and researching of the memorials gathered pace. Today there are the majority of the war memorials to be found in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and old Huntingdonshire listed on what became a new site. Each memorial is transcribed and each man individually researched. These details along with photographs and links are then displayed on the site.

Today the memorials cover the whole of the United Kingdom as well as some overseas. Information about regiments and airfields have also been added plus several searchable databases covering various periods.

Martin has been researching his family trees since the late 1980's and is currently researching several surnames; EDWARDS, CARMAN, MARRIOTT, BARRETT, BARRITT, BUTCHER and PALMER. All these are in the East of England, mainly East Anglia. During this research he has collected a varied amount of information about people, places, websites, etc. These have all been accumulated on the Genealogy on the various web sites maintained or here.

The Wesley Players was an amateur dramatic group that my father and I both belonged to for several years. During that period my father kept a scrapbook containing details of each play, whether he was in it or not. There is now a site which contains details taken from the scrapbook.

The Boer War site covers all aspects of the First and Second Boer Wars in South Africa.

See the photo album Photograph Album

We all maintain our scrapbooks and photograph albums; we have started to put ours on-line for our friends and relations to enjoy as well. It is one way to keep east and west in touch with each other and is a reminder of the various good, and sometimes bad, times we have had.
