April 1925: Heaviley School: Sunday, March 8, was an ‘Open Day’ with us.

Miss Winifred Boothroyd added to the impressiveness of the service by a splendid rendering of ‘Thanks be to God’ and ‘He was despised’.

4 October 1963: Philip Boothroyd, 1st violin, Covent Garden Orchestra; Reginald Boothroyd, 2nd violin
