|About Relative Density
This site was created by the late Bill and his wife Anne Wardle (nee Hawkins). It attempts to
record most of the information collected during their researches over the last 30 years and
this has been supplemented by ongoing information being continually supplied by friends and
relations connected to the site.
After the death of Bill in Oct 2017 I (John Mellors) offered to take on the responsibilty
for keeping both this web site and its associated Facebook page Relative Densisty up and
running and hopefully continuing to add information on other associated families
Given time I hope to add information from Nottingham Newspapers this will hopefully add to
the information that Bill used to post from the Nottingham Date Book

Can I draw your attention to "Useful Links" below. Item entitled 'Family Videos'
This is my latest attempt to share my videos with you all. The link will take you to a short
film of Ruddington Framework Museum in Nottinghamshire UK. It goes some way towards showing how
many of our ancestors lived. NB: I now change the video regularly.
Whilst in the Video Station you will notice 'thumbnails' of other videos. Click on a
thumbnail and it will load. Anne and I have visited Ruddington a few times, and each time we
have taken our vid-cam. Each cousin that has visited the UK has passed through Ruddington FW
museum during their time in Nottingham, other places visited are; Sherwood Forest, Calverton,
Gedling, Attenborough, Attenborough Nature Reserve, and of course, Arnold.
Other videos include some weddings, holidays, and of course pets. Most videos last less than
35 minutes (2.1GB) and are in MP4 format. And are down-loadable. It would be great if you have
any videos to share. If you have, please contact me to arrange an upload.
If you have any comments about the videos there is a window for making comments, please feel
free to make comments. Or you can let me have your comments through my 'Guest Book'
