Some history of Brereton
More information on Brereton to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Brereton from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Brereton. There is information on Brereton dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"An old and respected Brereton resident, Mrs. Jane Yates, of Beech Cottage, Coal Pit Lane, died on Friday at the age of 78. She was the widow
of the late Mr. Sam Yates, a well-known figure in this district, who predeceased her about a year ago. She had resided in this district nearly all her life, having
resided at Brereton for over half a century, celebrating her golden wedding in May, 1933. Like her husband - who for forty-five years was the superintendent of
the Brereton Methodist Sunday School - she took a keen and active interest in the work of the Methodist Church at Brereton and had a very large circle of friends in
the village. She is survived by a large family, four sons and four daughters, who are well-known in the district, particularly Mr. Sam Yates, who takes a prominent
part in Brereton's sporting activites like his father did before him."
