War memorial

Monday, June 27th, 2011

We have heard that the Parish Council are arranging for 3 more minster Lovell names to be carved on the war memorial. Thanks especially to Peter Gough for his persistence in tracing the war dead. Ernest Greenaway still eludes us but we will find him – maybe in Canada having survived WWI?

Who lived where in Minster Lovell?

Thank you to everyone who came to our stand at the Methodist anniversary fete on Saturday, especially those who bought copies of the book/DVD/film to help us pay for printing etc. on our projects. We also got some extra information on who lived in certain houses in the village – especially some of the Charterville bungalows. We have good data for when they were first built in 1845 and for the 1950s but need to fill in the gaps, so if you know of a family at a specific address then please contact us.
