Local Research Projects

As interest in the Great War has grown in the years running up to the Centenary of the conflict, a number of local Research Projects have sprung up. These are typically, although not exclusively, groups looking at the men who served in particular Regiments or came from particular Towns or Villages.

As a Branch we feel that members might be interested to know of these projects.

Back To The Front

Back to the Front is a community-based Project to research, record and remember the men and women from Abbots Langley, Kings Langley, Hunton Bridge and Leavesden who served during the Great War (1914-18). Over one thousand men from the four Hertfordshire villages served, some never to return, all with a story to tell and some as yet not remembered on the village War Memorials. The Project aims to uncover and record these stories and commemorate and remember these individuals a century on from the conflict


Herts At War

Herts at War is a community led project to commemorate the diverse experiences of Hertfordshire during the First World War. The project aims to uncover the untold stories of the county’s men and women, both on the fighting front and the home front, and commemorate these individuals a century on from the conflict.


Ver Valley Research Team

The Ver Valley Research Team, formed in 2012, are uncovering the story of the First World War as it affected a number of individual communities in the northern half of the Ver Valley. Their research not only covers the stories of the local men named on War Memorials but also includes the impact of Belgian Refugees moving into the area and the Billeting of other troops in the area. The communities currently covered by this group are The Childwickbury Estate, Flamstead, The Luton Hoo Estate, Markyate, Redbourn and St Michael's Parish, St Albans.
