I am researching the Freemen of Nottingham and would like some help please on the above named. I know he was born in Nottingham 1876 and died 1961, he was a solicitor, an Alderman of Nottingham and was knighted (I have no details of when etc) so anything else would be a bonus from anyone, many thanks for your help in advance
kind regards

Try a google search using his full name. Comes up with a lot of hits.

Thank you to the people who have helped me with the Freemen of Nottingham most of them are complete now. I have looked at every lead that has be provided for me and the only one where there is little information on is Bernard Wright,. So once again thank you all for your valuable help and hopefully you will all be there for my next project.
Kind regards
