Jim is researching a book and wants to hear from anyone who knew a Mr Yoxall, born 1857, who owned some allotments, a corn and seeds shop, and who was awarded the OBE in 1937 for his service as a city councillor during the Great War. E-mail us using the link at the right if you have information to pass on – he’s particularly interested in when Mr Yoxall was awarded his OBE.
