We are still participating in the fabulous Heritage Open Days scheme in this strange year, although it is online only.

Wycliffe’s Sunday School’s Roll Book from 1903 – 1920 is an impressive large handwritten record of admissions to the Sunday School. All the information has been photographed and will be displayed on our website for public viewing for the first time.

Beginning on 14th November 1903 – a year after the new school building was constructed – the record includes each student’s name, address, class, and occasionally age. There is a break from 1907 – 1916 when it seems another book was used. The last entries are in pencil in 1920. This original fascinating document has never before been available to view, and will be of interest to family historians, local historians and anyone with a connection to the area. Each page has been photographed, and is available to view here.
