Victor Gray, SRS Chairman

The Society regrets to announce the very sad news that our Chairman, Vic Gray, passed away on the 30th September following a short illness.  Vic’s death represents a great loss to us all involved in the history and heritage of Suffolk, and in particular to the Suffolk Records Society, which he chaired with great enthusiasm and skill for many years.

Vic will be deeply missed by us all and our heartfelt condolences and sympathy go out to his family.

Those of you who attended the AGM will know that Dr Harvey Osborne kindly agreed to serve as Acting Chairman during the period of Vic’s recent illness and Harvey will continue in this role for the time being.

An obituary by Harvey Osborne can be read here, and will be published in Volume 65 due out next year.

Welcome to the Suffolk Records Society

For over sixty years, the Society has been committed to producing books that bring Suffolk’s rich historical literature to a wider audience. Covering a period of 700 years these volumes of letters, diaries, maps, accounts and other archives have made a major contribution to historical studies of the county and are a useful tool for both professional and amateur historians, as well as being a source of information for anyone interested in Suffolk’s history.

Every year, the Suffolk Records Society produces at least one new book throwing light on some fresh aspect of the county’s history. There are two series of volumes, the General Series, for which we publish a regular annual volume, and the Charters Series, for which we publish occasional volumes of Suffolk charters and cartularies.

The Society’s members share a passion for Suffolk and its history and it is their support and subscriptions that have made possible this remarkable opening up of the historical landscape.
