Grimsby at War 1914-1918

Grimsby at War 1914-1918 Ev Page and Linda Bauman – Grimsby Historical Archives

For the past four years volunteers at the Grimsby Historical Society Archives have researched how life in Grimsby changed during the Great War. They have honoured those who served, those who contributed gifts for their comfort and those who kept the farms vibrant.

While many later residents served in the war, the project addressed mainly those who were born or lived in Grimsby prior to and during 1914-1918. One other added research branch focussed on the parents who lived in Grimsby at that time. By linking these criteria more than 400 men’s names were added to the project master sheet.

The presentation will address what life was like for the towns’ people and for those serving on the front line in France and Belgium. Members of the 62 Phantom Squadron Cadets will be the voices of local men as they read their letters from the trenches and hospitals overseas.

This event is hosted by the Grimsby Historical Society.
