One Response to Lane, Thomas Henry

  1. Mrs Sylvia Brown nee Lane says:

    Thomas Henry Lane was my father’s brother and I have a photograph of the ‘Lane’ family outside their cottage near All Saints Church circa 1904. I also have a photograph of soldiers convalescing in the lecture hall, one of whom married my father’s sister who became an auxiliary nurse along with another sister, and I have a photograph of them both in their nurse’s uniform. If you would be interested in a copy of these perhaps you could ring me on 01283 733109 ?
