    I was looking at family history pages and came across yours. I was interested to see you have Dorothy Leonora Stewart in your tree born 1937. I worked with Leny for a few years in the Maths dept. At Thomas Rotherham College. Have you removed yout churchyard information from the Swinton and Kilnhurst site. Thanks
