Rev. John Yeandle-Hignell (Urgent)

by Yeandle-Hignell, Tuesday, March 08, 2022, 17:47 (803 days ago)

Hello

I am trying to find some information and possibly photographs of my great uncle Rev. Yeandle-Hignell and his sister ( my Grandmother) Hilda Gwendoline Hignell. I know Rev. Y-H lived in the FOD in 1930 and was a Rector by 1933. I don’t know the name of the church, the record just says “The Rectory”. I have searched using their names but have not had any luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you use the Advanced Search of Parish Records on this site and search Burials and enter "Yeandle" in the "Officiating Minister" field you will find 36 results all for Cinderford St John between 1931 and 1933. There are no results for Baptisms or Marriages.
