PIP - Philip Taylor was headmaster at Malton Grammar School 1951-1971. Memories of him from his daughters

Mrs Williams died in December 2004, aged 96.  A few notes from her funeral service are included.

Fred Trueman's autobiography includes a number of references to Vic Wilson. That noting Vic's appointment as captain of Yorkshire County Cricket Club is on the site.
