  1. I am looking for old photographs of the auxilary fire services New Alresford between 1925 to 1949 if you have any could you let me know because my father was in this service between this time and I am dong a family tree and want to obtain some if available. ON ONE OF THE PREVIOUS PHOTOGRAPHS YOU SHOWED THERE WAS A PERSON CALLED BIGGS SHOWN ON IT CAN YOU GIVE ME ANY DETAIL ABOUT THIS PERSON


    • Fred Biggs was pictured outside the Bush Inn in the 1920s, but I have no more information about him! Obviously he liked a pint! See the story about the Bush Inn dated 16 February 2013.

  2. My Father is shown in the photograph of footballers you show and is called Eric Biggs and had a brother as well who I want to obtain a photograph of. His father was William Charles BIGGS and his mother was Kate Bessie Elizabeth Biggs who i am looking for a photograph of both. Can you keep your eye open for the folowing people on pictures. They lived at 20 broad street New Alresford between 1913 to 1939. I will forward a photograph that i have of the fire services between this time.

    My mother lived in the Manley farm cottages Ovington , my Grandad was Tom Hedger who was a farm labourer on the farm. Am looking for a photo of either of them: my mother was married in St Marys church Alresford.
