GREAT NEWS! - Two new Raunds-born WW1 casualties discovered!
In late July we were contacted by Simon Coggins-Hill with details of two of his Raunds-born relatives who had died during the Great War but didn't appear in our records - brothers Harry and Leonard Coggins.
We've now added entries for these two worthy gentlemen on the "Addenda and Corrigenda" page of our "Publications" section - check them out!
Although our research into the military history of Raunds goes on .......
Our original project was funded by the Local Heritage Initiative, a national scheme that helped local groups to investigate, explain and care for their local landscapes, landmarks, traditions and culture. The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) provided the grant but the scheme was a partnership, administered by the Countryside Agency with additional funding from Nationwide Building Society.
