Thanks are due to the Staff of Pendeford, Oxley and Central Libraries for their help, to local people who have contributed information, to Rev. Roger Harper for giving us the impetus to put the information together, to Sue Whitehouse and the members of the Dovecote Project for encouraging the second edition and to Pendefordians, past and present, without whom there would be no story to tell.
