Comments about this page

  • My great grandfather, Fred Shepherd, and great grandmother, Edith Elizabeth Frost were married here in 1884.
    Fred Shepherd was a keen Methodist, and had started the Band of Hope at Mosborough Primitive Methodist Chapel when he was 15 years old. When he moved to Sheffield he continued his work with the Band of Hope Union and held various positions in the Methodist Church.
