Wilf Drum


"Bridgwater's Catholic Past" was originally written in serial form by Wilf Drum for VOX POPULI, the parish magazine of St Joseph's Church. It was published six times a year from Easter 1961 until Christmas 1972. The fourteen instalments appeared over 30 years ago - December 1966 to be precise.

Wilf was a chemist by profession but he had a keen inerest in local history, especially in the history of his church. He wrote of many prominent church workers, but it is not surprising: he was one of them.

He died on 27th January 1982, aged 81 years. His widow, Wynn, was still a loyal parishioner of St Joseph's until she left the parish several years ago.
