Quite some years ago my Great Aunt Joy gave me a gorgeous Nottingham lace bedspread that had been designed by her Grandfather, William Bucknall (1861-1937). Joy thought it had been made for display at a London exhibition, but was unsure of any details and I haven’t yet been able to place it.
I’ve since found out about as much as I can about him, all the census returns, plus birth, marriage and death records which I was able to pass on to Joy. I wasn’t expecting to find anything else. So I was delighted to find a photo of William among Joy’s photos; I’d missed it before and only spotted it as I was looking for more ‘Wordless Wednesday’ pictures!
