William Astwood's Contemptible Offence - Ecclesall Churchyard
Whilst I was researching the fate of a certain Arthur Gleave earlier this year, I saw this report of William Astwood's activities in Ecclesall Churchyard dating from 3rd September 1925
Obviously the offences that Astwood committed were that serious that they warranted a "special watch" by the police (two constables apprehended Astwood) . And the fine was heavy as well - over £250 at current prices. In addition the presiding magistrate let his feelings be known in no uncertain terms
Nowadays I doubt if anyone would care one jot!
