Florence Derbyshire - Trance Medium

Post by Slatewriter on Wed May 28, 2014 8:14 pm

Hi
I'm fairly new here and it's such a great forum.

I was hoping to pick the brains of anyone here who had any info or even recollections of the Hull Medium, Florence Derbyshire.
After searching online I could only find one tiny mention and a pdf by Mr Don Galloway - which describes a sitting he once had.

Anything would be of interest,

Thanks in advance

 Very Happy

She's not listed on the website whose link I've posted but you might want to visit it anyway.  From there you can contact the owner who might be able to help.

Hi, Florence Derbyshire was my Grandmother. I don't know much about her but know she was a really good medium. She worked in London for some time working for the psychic research centre. My father is her son if you have any particular questions let me know and I will try to find out any info you need.

Hi Lesley,

Welcome to the forum.

I think it would be most interesting to learn more about the mediumship and career of Florence Derbyshire, your grandmother, and encourage you to ask your father what he can share about her and her work.

In addition to being one of the administrators of this forum, I am actively involved in researching the history of Spiritualism and am also involved in the ongoing work associated with "Psypioneer," an reputable internet journal attempting to make accessible accurate records of Spiritualism, and mediums from the past.

If you take a look at back copies of this publication: http://www.woodlandway.org/Psypioneer_Journal.htm you will see that it focuses on primary records and treats subjects in a genuine and unbiased way.

Perhaps it might be possible to gather enough material to write an article about her for this publication. If you think your father might be willing to assist please do contact me. You can send me a private message via the forum if you would like to discuss the idea.

All the best,

Lis

Hi Wattie,
yes that's right - I uploaded the recording to youtube myself...Mrs Derbyshire worked at the SAGB, but there's next to nothing online about her at all Sad
I was given permission to share the audio by Vicky's family...
There is a wonderful book about this topic by Vicky's father, Dr Pearce, called 'One Man's Odyssey' - there is an ebook version if you can't find the paperback.
I'm working with the family on a new book which will contain much more data than the original....
What do you think of the audio ??
Cheers

Hello Slatewriter,
Sorry, I should have noticed that the recording had been posted by yourself. I find the sitting impressive and the childlike emotion expressed in the voice very touching. The accent and intonation is that of a southern English upper or middle class child which I take it that Vicky was being the daughter of a doctor and I look forward to reading both books, Dr Pearce's and your own, in due course. There is no trace of a Hull accent at all and I wonder if Mrs Derbyshire did in fact speak with one in everyday life.
Good luck with the book.

Hello again,
yes indeed, Vicky's accent matches that of her family's, who resided in the Norfolk/Suffolk area. The Medium, Mrs Derbyshire, who later moved to London, did speak with a Hull accent, as it seems did one of her guides (curiously). Yet there were others recorded, both male and female, each with different accents and of different age groups. Most fascinating is the voice of a guide named Tanya (mentioned in Dr Pearce's own book) who speaks with a convincing Eastern European accent (possibly Polish or Latvian I think). I will be uploading more of this fascinating audio as time permits Smile
Thank you for your interest

Thanks for that Slatewriter very interesting, now after 2 years living with a family in Hull while at college I think everyone there had that accent, even I was a dab hand at it.
