My family originated from Aldeburgh and my great-grandfather lived there until shortly
before his death in 1936. One of his sons died in the Aldeburgh Lifeboat Disaster
I have visited Aldeburgh many times over the years and now wish to delve deeper into
its past and to help others researching ancestors who once lived in this historic
As well as creating a website to publish information such as parish registers and
census returns, I have also started a facebook group called ‘Aldeburgh Past’ to provide
a forum for the exchange of information. I shall also ‘tweet’ as progress is made.
One of my first priorities is to publish information about the lifeboat disaster
that I obtained on my first visit to Aldeburgh back in 1986.
