Monmouthshire Beacon features author Robert Nurden's biography of his grandfather

On 28th July 2021, The Monmouthshire Beacon published an article by Robert Nurden about the life of his extraordinary grandfather, Stanley James (1869-1951) who was a cowboy in Canada, a Congregational minister in the UK and died as a convert to Catholicism. Despite his religious work and writing, it seems that Stanley James (who was married and had seven children) had a few dark secrets which Robert managed uncover while researching the book.
