  1. My Kind Of Town

    Thanks for that Steve I did do a search on the search engine for this page before I posted but nothing came up
  2. My Kind Of Town

    Has anyone read the Sheffield magazine My kind of town? I have just started reading it and I must say it is really interesting,full of old Sheffield photos,Sheffield places and the people of Sheffield's memories,It is a must for all people interested in Sheffield History, told by real people
  3. Relatives On The Titanic

    Thanks for all that information Richard I was not aware of this thread It has been fascinating to hear of the Sheffield connection
  4. Relatives On The Titanic

    It is an interest I have always had,it is not just about the rich that died on the Titanic by any means,to be honest I am more interested in the steerage passengers.They were on that ship with all their worldly goods,giving up everything they knew to start a new life in America,What courage that was and then to die without realising their dreams.I know there have been bigger tragedies and they are just as awful.Titanic was the sinking that shocked everyone because they believed it was unsinkable,they had a rude awakening and man was never as confident again.

  8. I am a keen researcher of all things Titanic and I am really interested to know if anyone had any relatives that were on the Titanic and any family stories connected to them I did read an article in The Star that said one of the officers on the Titanic,Henry Tingle Wilde was from Bradfield,are there any relatives of him who have any stories?.
