To these brilliant Barnsley fans for their continued work on the final resting place of Rev Preedy.
Well done lads.
Absolutely brilliant - well done fellas
I feel sorry for whoever is in the grave next to him. Probably whoever founded Sheff Wednesday.
I always find this annual pilgrimage very touching. I wonder if any other club does a similar thing?
Well done guys
It's a pleasure
Annual pilgrimage I think he means , lol
His fingers must be as fat as mine, lol
Sorry lads - corrected!
I prefer animal pilgrimage, mate.
next grave is Dr Reginald Pearson very close friend with Rev Preedy. Dr Pearson was so overcome by the death of his close friend that he became very ill and died shortly afterwards.
Dr Pearson's daughter Kathleen Mary Pearson b 1903 wrote The Borrowers series of books - Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
She wrote under her married name Mary Norton.
I thought you were on abart wednesday fans and their founder.
Huge respect lads.
I have mentioned this before but if you want a contribution to the costs please let me know
Hugely impressed. Well done from all reds fans!
He's a photo from the burial showing the graves of Preedy and Dr Pearson side by side, I think it may have been a joint ceremony ......Looks very sparce with hardly a tree in sight, nothing like the jungle that surrounds the site now.
I never knew this.That's my new thing learnt today. Thank you for that
