  1. I Have a letter to my Great Grandfather Sam Ramsden from his relative Sarah Ramsden. In the letter she mentions that Ruby had taken over (maybe from Mabel) as caretaker of the Avenue Methodist church. I dont have the date of the letter other than December. It all mentions that Edwin had taken over ‘the printing works. Sams brother Allan Ramsden was a well know photographer of the time – I have a book of his describing many of his exploits all around the vilages of Consett. I welcome any feedback from anyone about knowledge of any of the people and places I mention I have much more really interesting photographs and poems he wrote about the area.
