The Parishes of Luttons and Weaverthorpe, incorporating Helperthorpe

Thankful Village

Christopher Olie a resident of Kirbygrindalythe is in his final year of an undergraduate History Degree at York St John. He is undertaking to write his dissertation on the subject of ‘Helperthorpe – a Thankful Village.’

Whilst he will be researching formal records, his initial research has indicated that these are not always complete & that family-sourced information could make a big difference to the completeness of his finished work.

If anyone has any documents relating to the men & villagers of Helperthorpe during the First World War he would be very interested to see them.

If you can help please contact Christopher by email
