The Sheffield Flood

A colleague from the London Group of Yorkshire Family History Societies, UK drew my attention to a web site on which there are a number of Bunting individuals (15) who submitted damage claims following the unexpected breach of Dale Dyke Dam, Bradfield, on March 11th 1864, which flooded the Loxley and Don Valleys including the low lying parts of Sheffield, Yorkshire, UK.

I have extracted the names and passed them on to our Record Keeper, Mary Rix, so that she can put them into the context of Bunting families and census information.

Our thanks must go to the Heritage Lottery for their funding of the project to put the concise information of records from the Sheffield Archives and those of Bradfield Parish Archives onto the site and finally to the Sheffield Hallam University who are the site hosts.

If you have difficulty navigating the site then let me know.

Michael.
