Local People

Research, family reminiscences and photos have been blended into information panels and videos about some of the individuals and families, who were living in the Trentham area in the early decades of the 1900s.

In 2018 we marked one hundred years since women gained the vote by featuring some of the women living in Trentham in 1918.

The project will continue to add people as their details come to our attention.If you have information that you would like to share, please use the contact form.
