Salesian Cemetery at Shrigley, this book provides biographical essays
and quoted recollections from over 40 Staff, Old Boys and relatives in relation
to each of the 13 people (students and staff) buried in the Shrigley Cemetery,
together with an Introduction which sets the context by discussing the way
of life at Shrigley and among Salesians generally. It has been in preparation
since immediately after the 75th Anniversary Celebrations in 2004. Much fresh
material on all its subjects has been collated and it runs to over 130 A4
pages and is illustrated with over 80 photographs. It amounts to a Celebration
of the lives of 13 good people and should prove an absorbing read for Salesians,
Old Boys and relatives alike.
The authors have researched, collated, written and published the book from their own resources and it is important that it be properly launched in order to maximise their chances of recouping some of their expenses. Even more significantly, the occasion will be an important one for the relatives involved, helping them to bring closure to a painful episode in all their lives. A launch will also bring a special focus to the 2007 Re-Union and hopefully further cement our relations with the senior staff of the Hotel, who have been entirely constructive in their behaviour towards the Shrigley Association'.
