gone but not forgotten
Going through my loft looking for paper work for info; for a forum member i came across a peice of paper cutting
and its a photo copy of the birth and deaths obiturri dated 1935
and it was to do with my great grand father george william jelf whom was listed as a resturanter
in tyburn rd erdinton [ corner of holly lane and tyburn rd ]
and in this section it stated ; the widow and family; wish to thank all relatives; friends; druids;
And work people of dunlop rubber co; for there kind sympathy and floral tributes in there bereavement
this was dated september -- 23 -09 -35 [ he died 15 09 35 ;
but what my question is ; ?. what was the druid society of aston branch birmingham and what did they do ;
and where about in aston did they operate from what was there fundementals roll
as i was told i was told that he was a grand master of this society along with his brothers and so was there fore fathers
