In 2014, for the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1, we researched the impact of the war on Redditch and its residents as depicted through local newspapers.

That research is presented in six books telling the story of the impact of WW1 on the People and Events in Redditch. Since then we have expanded  the data available as displayed in these archives.
