An Exhibition by Sutton Coldfield Local History Research Group was one of the attractions marking the start on Tuesday, 19th February 2019, of more frequent Open Days at Holy Trinity Parish Church. This was the brainchild of Marian Baxter, our Vice Chairman, who suggested to Revd John Routh that it would be a worthwhile exercise to record details of the lives of the people whose memorials appear in the church.
Much work has been done by some of our members - Marian herself, Don McCollom, Janet Lillywhite, Eileen Donohoe and Ann Geraghty - piecing together some fascinating details about these previous local inhabitants.
Those whose lives feature in the current exhibition are Harry Charles Hill, Bernard Winder, John Oughton, and Thomas Hunnybourn. People who are buried in the churchyard are also listed and, on this occasion, further details are given for William Baylis, Charles Brockas and Joseph Handy.
It is hoped that others will appear in future exhibitions.
