About the Site


The objective of this not-for-profit website is to provide a comprehensive, reliable and user-friendly source of information for the Ellerby community and others interested in Ellerby, past, present and future.


We have no affiliations to any other organisations, commercial, social, political or religious. We do not receive external funding of any kind.

All Ellerby Parish Council and Skirlaugh and Ellerby Joint Burial Committee material is provided by courtesy of the Parish Clerk and is published here verbatim.

All mention of local businesses, services, etc is for information only and must not be taken as an endorsement or recommendation of any kind.


We do not accept advertising, preferring to leave that to, for example, “the Newsletter” and other local media.

We welcome notices of forthcoming public events within Ellerby Parish. There is no charge for this service but we reserve the right to refuse to publish any material which we consider inappropriate. We cannot accept any responsibility for the accuracy of the content of these notices or for the conduct of the events themselves. Information regarding forthcoming events may be given to us via the “Contact Us” page.


We welcome comments and feedback regarding the site and its content. If appropriate, and by mutual agreement, we will add your comments to our Visitors’ Book. We would particularly appreciate personal recollections of Ellerby life and family history. Again, these items may be submitted via the “Contact Us” page.


If you have a question about Ellerby, and cannot find an answer within the site, we may be able to help by reference to our unpublished material. If that fails, and your question could be of general interest, we will try to find an answer.


We thank all the many Ellerby residents, and others, who have contributed their local knowledge, photographs or expertise to our web content. Particular thanks are due to: Brian Coates, David Dawson, Mike Fink, John Hallaway, Steve Howdle (ERYC Rural Development Officer), Pat and Dennis Mars, Bob Myers, and John Walton.
