Discovering Dodds; Heritage Event
08/09/2017 | St. Mary's Heritage Centre |
Discovering Dodds ; Heritage Event St Mary’s graveyard houses a wide array of character. Ironmasters rub shoulders with mariners, gardeners, clergy and glassmakers. In 1907, a local bookseller, Edwin Dodds, decided to catalogue all the graves then in existence, taking photographs and adding family history information to many of the entries and producing two illustrated volumes. Since he did this, many graves were removed in the 1930s and others have been moved from their original position. Now with the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund, these books have been digitised. Come and explore them online and in hard copy and then have a short guided tour of St Mary’s graveyard.
