I don't think I could get any of these without an internet search... (Also, not Sunday yet)

Got one: the White Rose of York, Mary the Mystica Rosa *white rose of purity), and the White Rose student opposition movement in Nazi Germany (most of them were given show trials and executed.)

15 Henri IV of France; James II & VII; John Newman; Evelyn Waugh; Graham Greene? They all converted to Roman Catholicism from their local brand of Protestantism. Henri IV's comment on his conversion was that Paris is worth a Mass. John Newman was Cardinal Newman who wrote what became the lyrics for Elgar's The Dream Of Gerontius, which I have never listened to.

Oh, that makes sense given some of Evelyn Waugh's and Graham Greene's novels. They've got some very intense Catholic guilt going on.

These were much more difficult and I think 4/7 is a good score in such circumstances though perhaps Team HF was a little off-form in not getting #12.

9 White Rose symbol.
10 England footballers sent off in the World Cup.
11 Non-Italians buried in Venice.
12 UK saints’ days (number of day in non-leap year).
13 Wrote novels with streets in the title: Brick Lane; Cannery Row; Revolutionary Road; Utopia Avenue.
14 Dollar signs in stage names : Ke$ha; A$AP Rocky; Ty Dolla $ign.
15 Converted to Catholicism.
