Leyton and Leytonstone Historical Society

Have you any family connections with Leytonstone?

Members of Leyton & Leytonstone Historical Society are researching how the town coped with the demands of WW (1)

Entitled ‘Leytonstone at War’, we will be producing a display, a publication and a radio presentation describing the lives of ordinary Leytonstone people caught in the conflict.

We appreciate that many Leytonstone families from those times have moved into Essex and hence this request. We would like to hear from anyone who had relatives living in the town during the war and who may have letters, photographs, artefacts and anecdotes,  to allow us to consider them for display purposes. We would particularly welcome any stories which provide a glimpse of everyday life during the war and perhaps details of any events that occurred locally.

We promise to treat all offerings with utmost respect and consideration.

If you could possibly help use please make contact via the details given below.
Thank you
G. Millington
