Beechey Brothers' (and Mum's) window in Friesthorpe Church
Beechey Brothers' (and Mum's) window in Friesthorpe Church
The full quote is: "It was no sacrifice, Ma'am, I did not give them willingly."
Amy Beechey lost 5 sons in WW1. The above was her reply when in April 1918 she was presented to King George V and honoured by the King and Queen for her immense sacrifice.
Amy's husband, the Reverend Prince William Thomas Beechey had been Rector of Friesthorpe with Snarford, but when the Rector was taken ill with cancer, the family had to leave the Rectory and moved to live in a two-up, two-down terrace in Lincoln.
