  1. Lest We Forget. At 11am on the 11th November 1918, guns fell silent on the Western Front in France and Belgium ending four years of continuous war in Europe and the Middle East. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the moment the fighting ceased has become universally associated with the remembrance of those who died in the war, the "war to end all wars". I have been researching the men from Sheffield who gave their lives in World War One. The result of this research, which still continues, can be found on http://stannington.webitsmart.co.uk/ Please take time on Sunday, to remember the brave men, who gave the ultimate sacrifice. They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We shall remember them. Regards Robert.
  2. We had Vanilla and Rasberry Ripple Saturday night - this ice cream is superb, the best around. We also have milk delivered from the same farm as the ice cream is made. None of that messing about in supermarkets. I get fresh milk delivered every morning to the door. its all taken care of by the milkman, delivery, payment, everything. Its a hassle free arangement. Try having milk delivered - its the future
  3. Skippy, take at look at my website - 'Stannington Roll Of Honour', there are details relating to the Beachell, Tattersall & Revitt families. Could be your relatives. I used to live on Sheldon Lane in the old houses that got knocked down (somebody is building a house where they were). Then we moved across the road into a flat in the old police station across from Charlesworth's. Then to Pond Close when the council built new houses. I still live in Stannington. Cheers Robert.
  4. In Flanders Fields, by John McCrae In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row by row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard among the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe; To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

  7. I observed two minutes silence to mark Armistice Day at home. I have spoken to other people who were in supermarkets and Meadowhall when two minutes silence was observed. Apparently Meadowhall was quite an experience if you were there. Well done everybody.

  9. I wonder if anybody could help me. I have been researching a family, who lived in Sheffield and the head of the family on the 1901 census has an occupation "Van Man Plater" Does anybody know what this is ? Thanks in advance Robert
  10. Commisioned By Sheffield City Council. Made in ........... Huddersfield !!! They could have picked any one of a number of foundry's in Sheffield to make this piece. Shame
  11. Thanks for the help retep and many thanks to all the other people who contributed. Cheers Robert.
  12. Thanks retep. One final question - a strange one Is Henry 9-b-sheffield a boy or a girl?
  13. That fits the man I have researched. the 1891 census lists him, fifteen years old, a miner. His father and elder brother were also miners. can you confirm the Whysall family lived at number 10? Regards Robert
  14. I have been researching men who worked for Vickers Steelworks, Sheffield, England, who fell in the Great War 1914-18. Whilst researching details of William Whysall, I found his family living at 'Buttys Lump' Attercliffe when the 1891 census was taken. Has anybody ever heard of this address/place? Can anybody tell me where it was? Stannington Roll Of Honour
  15. Many thanks to everybody who observed 2 minutes silence and also took time to visit my site If anybody out there has any information about any of the men listed - please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. Many thanks Robert.
