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.
Start a facebook group, have an open day at a local library or somewhere. That's what we did for the Conisbrough and Denaby 100 Project, and we've found /been found by quite a few relatives
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?
Brilliant all of you - we are having an open night and there is some pr. Tom had a Facebook page. Andrew, locating just a name in Ancestry hasn't worked - can you guide me in the process? Thanks
An update for all of you. We have held an open night. 20 or so turned up, mostly interested people rather than relatives, but a success nevertheless. Our next date will be the book launch on May 13th.
Tom, the author of the book, met Josh last week and an article is out soon.
We have something on Facebook - email@example.com
The publisher's website - shallileybooks.org
Andrew - I have copies of biographies now of the 34 men - I might have a go at Ancestry.
Heather - how would you search and would there be a fee involved?
Jason - What is happening in September?
