In this folder you can find scans of original photographs of Arthur and other related archive images such as images of family and his death certificate. There are few known images of Arthur and we’re sad to say, some are very low quality. Thank you to Sheila Leeson and family for allowing family photos to be used in the public domain.


See snippets of the work and events undertaken with FURD over the last few years including key moments like Sheila Leeson’s trip to Ghana to meet her Ghanaian family and Arthur’s commemoration at Wembley.
