I have just discovered your Cottingham website, it is very interesting. My mother was a Tansley as were my grandparents although I've never been into the family history.


I know my mother was brought up by her grandmother in Cottingham/ Middleton, having been born illegitimate. Being in the 1917 -20 era you can appreciate that it wasn't talked of much. My grandmother and grandfather are buried in Cottingham churchyard.
