Absolutely excellent site!  Well worth looking at if you have have ancestors in West Yorkshire.  One particular page is intriguing. Check out "The Ghost Village of Yorkshire" I have no idea where it is but would love to know  :)

I agree the ghost village is fascinating, my first thought was that it had been requisitioned by the MOD but then I saw the much newer houses
