Ring the bells, on Christmas morn
Thomas Hodson was born at Mottram-in-Longdendale, Cheshire, in 1828 and worked for most of his life as a printer. Besides this he was a poet and champion of social justice. At the time that his poem, "Ring the bells" was published in 1908 he was an inmate of the Union Workhouse in Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire, and it is greatly to be feared that he died there.
