Welcome to the website of the Freemen of the City of Oxford.
An introduction to the historic organisation of The Freemen of the City of Oxford.
This site is currently under construction, so please forgive any issues as new items are added.
Freemen who have not heard the news will be saddened to learn that on Sunday 6th May our Chairman Howard Crapper and his wife Shirley were involved in a serious car crash. It happened in the afternoon, on the A420 near Tubney, as they were returning from an event organised by the Freemen of Coventry. Shirley died at the scene. Howard was injured, but has now returned home, although further surgery will be needed. The sympathy of all Freemen is extended to him and his family.
Howard is not asking for flowers at the funeral, but that any donations should go to Cancer Awareness Saint Helena, which has a website under that name.
