Picture required by Patricia Hales

I have had the following email in from Patricia Hales

My great-grandfather, Edmund Rothwell, was a member of Rochdale Golf Club until his untimely death at the age of 39 in 1898. I was so pleased to find his name included in your list of Members 1895. I suppose it is too much to hope that you might have a photograph of him somewhere in your archives. He was a prominent person in Rochdale, being the Manager, and later Chairman, of Bury, Rochdale & Oldham tramway company, on the Committee of the Merchant Traders Association, a prominent Freemason and Vice President of Rochadale Hornets at one stage. Anything you can do to help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.


Can anyone provide me with the request for the picture so that I could forward it on.?

Thank you

The editor of RGC History
