Next Zoom Talk

A reminder that our next Zoom talk is this Wednesday (14th April): ‘Criminal Lunacy – From Dock to Asylum in 19th Century Yorkshire’ to be given by archivologist, genealogist, social historian and author David Scrimgeour. This meeting is exclusively for members who have paid to join the History Society. Members should have already received their invite to the meeting by email.

The ‘doors’ will open at 7pm but the meeting won’t start until around 7.30pm. This is to give people the chance to log in to the meeting and to make sure everything is working ok.

  1. are there any photos of my grandads brother james berry x mayor of keithly i think 1920s

    1. Hello John. There was a James Berry who was Mayor of Keighley 1929/30 but we don’t have any photographs of him in our archive (the Town Council has portraits of all the mayors on display in the Town Hall). There is a photo of Market Street from 1964 with a building with the name of James Berry on the side, but I can’t vouch for whether this is the same James Berry.
