St Mary of the Angels, Batley: One-Place Study Update – 1 to 31 July 2022 Additions

This is the latest update of the pages relating to my Batley St Mary’s one-place study, the details of which I announced here.

July saw the addition of seven new posts, bringing the total number of posts to 164. Three others were updated.

The additions included five weekly newspaper pages for July 1916. I have accordingly updated the surname index to these During This Week newspaper pieces, so you can easily identify newspaper snippets relevant to your family.

I have written a new biography for a War Memorial man – that of Edward Barber.

More men who served and survived have been identified. I have updated that page accordingly. No new biographies for these men have been added this month. They will follow in due course. 

Finally for this month there is one new school log books. This is for the Boy’s Department in 1919.

Below is the full list of pages to date. I have annotated the *NEW* ones, plus the *UPDATED* pages, so you can easily pick these out. Click on the link and it will take you straight to the relevant page.
