Associated with the Faith from the very beginnings of the Administration in the British Isles, the Joseph brothers gave long and outstanding service to the Cause. Jacob (later “Jeff”) was Chairman and Albert (then Ibrahim) a member of the first “Spiritual Council” of the Bahá’ís of Manchester. Jacob was a member of the first “All-England Bahá’í Council” in 1922 and of the first National Spiritual Assembly in 1923. Both were mentioned in and received some Tablets from the Master and both were warmly regarded by the Guardian for their services to the Faith. Jeff died in August 1969 in Manchester and Albert in August 1978.
