We have been contacted by Graham Hall, who is trying to trace records of his grandmother, Jessie Herring, born in 1883, and whose early childhood was spent in BCS. (She later moved to Reading). If you have any ideas that might help, you can contact him on 01494 722015 or email

Other recent inquiries include someone who thinks he may be related to 'Zonk' Barlow, the village roadsweeper. You can find these and more on the Family Histories page; just follow the links from History on the top red bar. << Go Back
