I lived in Annesley Woodhouse from 1936-1950, when I was conscripted into the R.A.F. for national service. I attended Kirkby Woodhouse School. The Owston's owned the post office, and the Chancellor's, succeeded by the Lawrence's, the 'beer off'. The Fisher family were at the farm, which,I understand, is no more. I attended Saint John's Church, where the respective vicars were, Butler, Gibson, and preston. I remember Harold Parker, with his coal lorries and 'bus, the latter by which he transported the men from Annesley Colliery. My family moved to live in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire, in 1951, and upon demobilisation from the R.A.F in 1952,I followed them.
In 1956, I moved to live in Ireland, and was subsequently Ordained into the Ministry of the Church of Ireland. I retired in 2002.
