Golden testimonial

Presentation book by the parishioners of Burton St Modwen to Revd Herbert Bentley Freeman and Mrs Freeman, on his leaving the parish and rural deanery in 1924, to become Canon Residentiary of Bristol Cathedral. The previous owner of this book was the daughter of a friend of Rev Freeman in Bristol, who was also ‘keeper’ of the Freemans’ tomb in the grounds of Bristol Cathedral, who had been given the book by the Freemans’ family. The title page of the address is illuminated with two illustrations of the exterior and interior of St Modwen’s church, followed by five pages of names of subscribers.
