Study Description 

Aldeburgh is well-known for its Moot Hall, dating from the early to mid-16th century. It once stood in the centre of the town, but coastal erosion over the centuries has left it standing adjacent to Aldeburgh Beach. My wife’s ancestors lived at Aldeburgh for many years. Her great-grandfather James Miller Ward died in 1936, and his son, also James Miller Ward, was one of the seven lifeboatmen who died as a result of the 1899 Aldeburgh Lifeboat Disaster. This ‘at a distance’ study has been made possible with the help of a wonderful group of residents, both past and present.
