From the private collection of Cecil Delisle Burns, who trained for the priesthood at the College Inglese, Via di Monserrato Rome, from 1901. 'My paternal Grandfather Cecil Delisle Burns trained for the priesthood at the College Inglese, via Monserrato Rome, from 1901. Having completed his training, he returned to England to await a Diocese, he was offered the Diocese of Brentford. However, he and several others within the Catholic Church were seen as Modernist influences and were effectively hounded out of the Church because of their refusal to conform to what they saw as outdated practices'. Thence by descent.

The amount you bid should be your maximum bid. We will bid up to that limit for you, and remember you may end up paying less than your limit, depending on other bidding on the day.

You can leave an absentee bid up to half an hour before the start of any sale. Please note when we receive two or more absentee bids for the same amount, the first bid received will be the one taken.
