Useful links and Acknowledgments

April 2020, The Mill Pond, Sudbury Common Lands

Building our website would have been impossible without considerable support and help and we would like to thank the following people and organisations in Sudbury:

The staff at the Town Hall in Sudbury: Sudbury Town Council, the Sudbury Ephemera Archive, Sudbury Museum Trust and the Sudbury Photo Archive, the Friends’ of St. Peter’s, the Sudbury Grammar School Old Boys’ Association, and the Suffolk Free Press.

We would like to thank Adrian Walters, Clerk to the SCLC and Honorary Freeman of Sudbury, and Ross Bentley, Trustee of the SCLC, (Sudbury Common Lands Charity) for providing monthly newsletters about the riverside in Sudbury. Thank you also to Helen Richardson from the Suffolk Family History Society for her help with tracing Freemen’s headstones in Sudbury Cemetery and local churches.

Thank you to David Burnett, Roger Green and Barry Wall for their help with sourcing images and information.

A big thank you to the members of the Sudbury Freemen’s Society who have kindly contributed material for the website. We are particularly grateful to Margaret Seager for the gift of many local history books.

The website would not have been possible without the scholarship of Allan W. Berry and Anthony R. Wheeler.

The website has been funded by the Sudbury Freemen’s Trust with help from Jean Moscrop.
