Robert Higham in Hyde, Greater Manchester

Memory of
Robert Higham, J.P.
of Windsor Bank, Hyde,
Editor and joint proprietor
of the
North Cheshire Herald,
for upwards of 40 years,
who died Febr. 17th 1905,
aged 66 years.'
Strange how I missed this in Hyde Cemetery the first time round. Many local writers were published in the North Cheshire Herald, which for a large number of them was a literary launching pad leading to individual publications. George Booth's side of the monument is here.
