So there you have it - modern history in the making!

Many thanks for your research, Anne. The chilling story of each of the seven martyrs is fascinating indeed, and what an amazing commission undertaken by artist sculptor, Rory Young.

I note that St Alban Roe was hanged for treason in 1642 after being found guilty of being a Roman Catholic priest, the same year that Dutch navigator Abel Janz Tasman discovered Tasmania and named it Van Dieman's Land. Being a native Taswegian myself, there's my connection to St Alban's Cathedral, a rather tenuous one I admit!.
