Our Footballing ancestors

Perhaps you have an ancestor who distinguished himself as an amateur or professional footballer, and want to find out more. Two of our recent clients had close cousins or grandparents who played national football, played for England or even survived the Manchester United air crash at Munich. It may be possible to trace their career through contemporary newspapers, club records and published histories. Looking back 100 years football offered the possibility of a better standard of living than factory work or mining for a lucky few, and even afforded the opportunity to become local and even national heroes.
