  • Dear Geoff,
    My mother Alice (nee Bradshaw) would like to see a picture of Alfreds wife if you have one, as she has never seen what she looks like. Can you help?

    Best regards,

  • Dear Geoff,
    My mother Alice (nee) Bradshaw would like to know if you have a photograph of her Grandmother Mary Ann Wilson who married Alfred Bradshaw, as she has never seen a picture of her. If you can help it would be appreciated.
    Many thanks
    Mike Norman

  • Hi Michael, Thanks for your comments. The Webb family certainly remember the Bradshaws, and other Bradshaw photos will be uploaded in due course. Other Bradshaws are already on the website, but a picture of a group of the Bradshaw brothers is to go on shortly. Geoff

  • Alfred Bradshaw is my Great Grandfather. My mother is Alice (nee) Bradshaw the daughter of Frederick Bradshaw one of Alfred’s sons. My mother Alice is still alive at the age of 88. Walter Bradshaw was one of Frederick’s brothers. I would be very interested in seeing more photographs of any Bradshaw’s if you have them, or if you would like to know more from myself about my family. I understand from my mother that her family knew the Webb family very well
