It is with great sadness that I tell you that Billy passed away suddenly but peacefully at home just before Easter 2007. His uniqueness and individuality will be greatly missed.
8 - My Baptism Card. Although a lifelong member of All Saints, the Monthly Family services in 1960 were held in the new parish Church of St Aidans and that is why I was christened there.
9 - Baptism card of Mavis Claire Campbell signed by Rev Wade on 2nd February 1941. Many thanks to her daughter, also Mavis for sending this in. All Saints was known at the time as Speke Church as it was the only one here!
10 to 12 - Thanks to Brian Reynolds who recently obtained a copy of the magazine of the Rose Queen Coronation in 1953. He got it on ebay so all you ebayers out there, keep your eyes open for more Speke History and let us know!
13 to 15 This is a Probationer's Training Card of a Choir boy at All Saints - Mark Tappenden. It is in three parts to fit it all in!
16 - Baptism card of Brian, son of Julie Whitehead who allowed me to copy this at the 2008 Exhibition.
17 - 20 These are copies of two postcards sent to Doris Johnson by her teacher at Speke School, Mrs Bliss. Thanks to Doris for allowing me to show them both.
21 - Thanks to Brian Gittins for sending in his Baptism Card from 1942.
22- Thanks to Rob Dobie for this copy of his Mum's School Certificate commemorating the Coronation of King George 6th. Have a close look at the characters around the edge as they include figures and symbols from each part of Britain and other countries.
