In adherence to the Constitution of NNWFHS notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Society will take place on Tuesday November 11th 2014 at 7.30pm at the Chilvers Cotton Heritage Centre. More detail will follow regarding a request for volunteers and nominees for the Committee.

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.

We have added a page listing the books owned by NNWFHS which are available to NNWHFS members to borrow at meetings. In addition we added a link for the books which are available to purchase online (where still in print). Click here to visit the page. You must be logged in first.

The NNWFHS Quarterly Journal has been released and will be winging its way to members via their chosen method of delivery.

  • Chairman's jottings
  • Widowed by transportation
  • Wills - windows into the past
  • Memories of a Nuneaton girl
  • Alfred Lester Scrivener
  • Useful website
  • Municipal cemeteries in and around N Warks
  • Unusual family names
  • Pip, Squeak & Wilfred
  • Agricultural revolution - drainage
  • Newdigate Colliery
  • Sqn. Ldr. A G Willshaw MBE, BEM
  • Life in the Madhouse
  • Found in the registers
  • The North Warks Pages
  • Atherstone's Great War Sailors
  • NNWFHS's WWI project
  • Charles Green's balloon ascent from Atherstone

Remember the journal is only available to Members (who can click here for a PDF copy) and for as little as £10 per year members receive four journals and exclusive access to copies of all journals issued since 2009 as part of their membership. 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!

Please note that we have added quite a lot of new content to the site and have begun a revamp of some of the older information. As ever we value all contributions and we are always grateful to receive input and material for publication. Please email the webmaster with any information you may want to share.

  • Six new War Memorial transcriptions to the public index (click here).
  • Hartshill War Memorial updated to include all the names of the fallen.
  • A complete and searchable index (click here) for all of the NNWFHS Journals.
