For two hundred years Burke's has been one of the most prestigious names in heritage publishing. The famous Peerage and Landed Gentry titles have long been the first port of call for those seeking information on British aristocracy, and now they have been opened up to a whole new readership. Times have changed and modern Britain is much more of a meritocracy. The movers and shakers of today owe their positions to a great deal more than heriditary circumstance, and Burke's recognise and celebrate this fact in this publication. This volume covers successful men and women from all walks of life in Yorkshire. Detailed listings of several thousand Yorkshire people are included: prominent public figures, decision makers, leading professionals, captains of industry, academics, celebrities, sports stars and many more. The publication also, of course, retains its historic role as the chronicle of aristocracy, with genealogies of noble families going back hundreds of years.
