  1. Has anyone any details or references to the Sheffield Humane Society? This would be around 1800 onwards.
  2. I have seen the name Francis Cluley associated with the Sheffield Humane Society in the early 1800s. The Humane Society (later Royal) was started in London in 1774 for the Resuscitation of the Apparently Drowned. Local Humane Societies started around the country and abroad sometimes associated with canals. I'd like to find out more about the Sheffield Society: when it started, who was involved, when it closed and if anything survives. Can anyone help?
  3. Please can you give me the reference/source for the fact that Mr F Cluley and others founded it 20th June 1810. Why was it formed, is there any record of its activities and how long did it last? Thank you nitrous
