Here's a link which contains some information: Maria Robinson

According to the researcher, Maria was born in Leeds, Yorkshire in 1878 to George Henry Robinson, a profitable cloth merchant.

As well, here is a link to an article which is included in the above link, detailing some further information on Maria:
Colnes Heroic Bandmaster Fiancee Left Behind

Last but not least, below is a letter which Maria wrote of thanks to the Office of the Provincial Secretary of Halifax:

Thank you, Jason. I am looking for something like a bio of MR. I assume there's an obituary in Leeds. Or perhaps a family thread.

Much appreciated.

You're welcome, Charles. There's a book mentioned in the news article (second link) titled "Playing To The End" by Darren Ward, which provides further information on Maria.

I'm having the same problem. Strangely enough, I cannot locate the book on amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.

I have, however found Darran's (yes there is an 'a' at the end of his name, so that is not a typo) Facebook account. I'll try to get in touch with him and find out where his book if it is still available, can be purchased. I'll post the information here, as soon as I have it.
