A few days ago, in our blog called Matters Genealogical, we talked of the search for information about Harry Sanders.
Our information was limited. We knew he died at Fiddington House in 1929 and had been born in Devon back in the 1860s. He was a Baptist minister and spent much of his adult life in Trowbridge.
We are now able to show a photo of Harry.
This may not look like the expected image of a minister of the cloth, but Harry was much more than this as a Western Daily Press obituary highlights.
The newspaper has made mistakes. The name Saunders is understandable and was often used for Harry although on official documents he is Harry Sanders. And we know he died at Fiddington House which by 1929 had been in Market Lavington since boundary changes some fifty years earlier.
We also know now, that our search for Harry in Market Lavington burial records was bound to be fruitless. He was buried back in his home town of Trowbridge.
