Phil Tomlinson from Derby has emailed to say "Just been looking at your web page as part of my family history and was amazed to find a picture of my Great Grandfather James Gyte. He was indeed listed as being the 'Inn Keeper' at the Queens Head in the 1901 Census. This is the only know picture of him, (the tall gentleman in the doorway) also we are fairly confident the old gentleman standing to the right of him is his father Abraham Gyte and one of the ladies in the upstairs window we suspect will be his wife Elizabeth (Nee Mosley) If anyone else is researching their family history I would be pleased to hear from you if you have any of the following names in your tree - Tomlinson, Mosley or Gyte. Keep up the tremendous work. (You can contact Phil via  our contact page. 84  Picture from the Slack family
