Welcome!
Visitors to the Catholic church in Ampleforth village cannot fail to be impressed by the monumental, oak crucifix, dated 1919, which stands in the cemetery. It holds a special place in the Mouseman history as it was this piece that started the famous working relationship between my Great Grandfather and Ampleforth College. The cross is also significant as it was one of the first of many war memorials produced in the Thompson workshop in Kilburn to commemorate those lost in the Great War and, later, in the 1939–1945 conflict. In this, the centenary year of the start of World War One and the 75th anniversary of the start of World War Two, I thought it fitting to focus this newsletter on some of those memorials and, by so doing, to pay tribute to the people and the acts of bravery - on land, at sea and in the sky - that they commemorate.   Ian Thompson Cartwright
