The Common Room / Re: Hampshire House Parliament

Oh dear.... unless he was haunting them?  ::)

I am also trying to find somewhere I can see or even buy back copies of the "Assurance Agents' Chronicle".  Again I have looked and looked on internet, but although I can find references to the Chronicle, I cannot find the thing itself. When Christopher was sacked from the bakery, he became an insurance agent and joined the National Amalgamated Union of Life Assurance Agents, later becoming the Secretary - for 37 years!

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Hi Stan,
Thank you very much for the information.

I have had a quick look in the British Newspaper Archives and found a reference, in 1911, to a "Mr Lancaster, Liberal, Haggerston". As he is talking about public houses without beer and cruelty to children often being due to drink, I am pretty sure that this is my grandfather.

Nice to see he might have rubbed shoulders with Chesterton and Morris!

In the 1911 census he was working as a Bakers Roundsman, probably for Lyons. He later lost his job for bringing 150 women out on strike.

Thank you again

Tilly

The Common Room / Hampshire House Parliament
« on: Monday 12 October 20 15:43 BST (UK)  »
Good afternoon,

I have just found some information about my grandfather, Christopher Lancaster, who apparently campaigned with Lloyd George and Campbell Bannermann in 1910 and then became "Commissioner of Works in the Hampshire House Parliament in 1911". I cannot find any information at all on internet. What was the Hampshire House Parliament" ???

I would be very grateful for any help.

Many thanks

Tilly ???

Oh must have been Woolies!! :D

The family resemblance is still there... I did a Zoom yesterday with my cousins and when I see the daughter of Kath (the one holding baby Ruth), it's like looking in a mirror!

Thank you so much, Pat and Ian! They are fantastic!

 I have sent all the coloured photos  to my cousins, who are delighted to see their mothers, aunts and Uncle Frank in colour and have asked me to pass on their thanks to everyone:)

Poor little Frank.... I feel sorry for him, even if he has got the wrong knee!

I am very glad Arsenal won - although I suppose it must have been an old match and maybe not a surprise.  ;D

Thank you again so much to everyone

Tilly xxxx :-*

Or cheese...

I've asked my cousin who has the photo to have a good look to see if there is anything else.

I'll let you know 🤔
