It is hoped that over time members of their family or those the families of those who knew them may come forward with information and photos about the life behind the name.

There may also be information from the local newspapers or church or club magazines of the time. Where the person is buried or commemorated elsewhere, perhaps someone will provide good quality images of the headstone.
