Older people can remain active and thoughtful and have the potential to grow. There are many role models. Mistakes happen, often hilarious. Join me on an ageing trip to places and moments.

New Mill Memorial Room
This is the WW1 cenotaph. I'm told it is one of the few indoors. It was the main reason behind the purchase of the building. Few people realise there is a memorial room there as it is mostly a club for the local village
Your local paper would write an article. Ours helped us time and time again when we were researching Uttoxeter's names. A website helps too. Ours brought in people from Canada and New Zealand! Good luck! it is a fine thing you are doing.
Tom Ashworth, a Holmfirth military historian will soon publish a book about 34 men from New Mill (near Holmfirth, Huddersfield)) who were killed in WW1 and who are commemorated in the memorial room of New Mill Club. We do not know the whereabouts of any friends and relatives who could hook up with this project. Any ideas as to how we find them?
