NNWFHS at Atherstone's WW1 Rememberence Weekend

The NNWFHS was at the Atherstone WW1 Weekend on of August 16/17 2014 and we used our WW1 display for the first time. Below are photographs taken of the display with our very own Celia Parton (far right) who has been very busy for a few years now leading the transcription of all the War Memorials in the NNWFHS area and more recently leading the research of military records to add background to the names on the memorial.

  • Wills - windows into the past
  • Memories of a Nuneaton girl
  • Alfred Lester Scrivener
  • Useful website
  • Municipal cemeteries in and around N Warks

  • Pip, Squeak & Wilfred
  • Agricultural revolution - drainage
  • Newdigate Colliery

In addition they have access to other databases and information put together by the Society that is not made generally available. If you are not already a member join now!
