Comments about this page

  • Thank you, Rita, for this extra information, which is also a good illustration of how people were remembered for their involvement in more than one aspect of their lives.
    Methodist Football clubs are another topic worth exploring. The club in my own village, Quorn FC, began as a Boys Brigade side, before becoming the Wesleyan Methodist club, and then representing the whole village. The Pleasant Sunday Afternoon movement is also something worth exploring.

  • Albert Ellis is also Commemorated on the WW1 War Memorial in St George’s church, Mossley.
    And so are:
    Edward Henry Garside
    Milton Hulley and
    James Stead
    Harry Pugh is also Commemorated on the Mossley Pleasant Sunday Afternoon Football Club War Memorial Tablet, and so is his brother Willie Pugh.
