Author publishes Tilbury parish history

Kevin Redmond has just published The Parish of Our Lady Star of the Sea, Tilbury  with a foreword by Father Paul Dynan. The book provides a detailed account of the Catholic presence (parish, schools, convent, Apostleship of the Sea) in Tilbury and Chadwell St Mary. It has been meticulously researched, extensive use having been made of the Brentwood Diocesan Archives, and is very well illustrated. This is a companion volume to the same author’s earlier book on the Catholic Parish of Stanford-le-Hope.

The Parish of Our Lady Star of the Sea, Tilbury has been produced by Dynan Publishing ISBN 978-0-9573479-1-5; pp. 365 paperback with colour/b & w illustrations; costing £7.99.  The book is available from Parish History, 96 Dock Road, Tilbury, Essex RM18 7BT; tilbury@dioceseofbrentwood.org
