Title: Frederick Granville's prayer book
Date(s): late 19th Century
Level: Fonds
Extent: 1 item

Scope and Content:
Prayer book ('The Divine Liturgy and Daily Sacrifice: A Manual of Devotions for the Sacrament of the Altar' ed. by the Rev. Orby Shipley. London 1866) belonging to Frederick Granville and presented to him by his sister, M. Paulet.

Granville recorded the death of his wife, Cecilia Anne, in 1877 aged 34. A photograph of a woman glued to the opposite page is most likely that of her. A loose photograph of a man may be that of Granville himself. A newspaper report (from which it appears that the Granvilles lived at Gwynfryn Hall) of the funeral at the Llangynfelyn cemetery is also pasted into the book, as are several letters of condolence.
Granville's prayers (for strength after his bereavement, and others) are also inscribed in the book.
Also copy letter from the depositor with some additional information on the Granvilles.
