    This looks somewhat vague. I’d like to see the document in its entirety.

    I think it’s a photo of a page from the Blagdon burial register for the year 1877. I think Andrew chose the page as it shows George Hill killed after falling from a hay mow in Capt Newnham’s and Edwin Trotman was the last schoolmaster to be employed by the Baynard Charity before the School became a Board School. There are photos of other pages in the Archive.

    Amazing knowledge there,Sheila; I’m impressed. By the way, Andrew was my dear cousin.
