LECTURE LIST




Ellesmere Port During the First World War

Tuesday 17 November 2015, Doors open at 7 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start. Tony Burnip Resource Centre (next to the Conference Centre), National Waterways Museum, Ellesmere Port

From the publicity notice to members of the Ellesmere Port Local History Society:
We are delighted to welcome back Mike Royden, who recently appeared as a researcher on the BBC's 'Who Do You Think You Are'. His talk will cover a variety of aspects that were taking place on the Home Front such as recruitment, fund-raising, local factories closing and the hardships caused by wide unemployment, the fear of air raids, the paranoia caused by Germans in the Port, the men who returned home with their stories of the Front and those who returned to their families with serious injuries, many of whom died and were buried in local cemeteries. There will also be references to biographies of many of the local men who paid the ultimate sacrifice - those now recorded on the local war memorial and the pilgrimages to the battlefields to discover where they fought and died.
