The purpose of the present essay is two-fold. First, to give a brief overview of the totality of the mathematical work of the Youngs from a modern viewpoint; it is hoped that this would be an useful complement to the obituary articles of Hardy and Cartwright which are included in this volume.Second, to explain the rationale behind the choice of the 52 articles selected for inclusion in the present volume, out of a total of 215 which appear in the Mathematical Bibliography of the Youngs. This mathematical work is divided into three broad categories: theory of real functions, Fourier analysis and miscellaneous.
