Help make history by sharing your family mementos from the First World War.
Bring along your photos and objects from the conflict to be digitally scanned and archived
as part of the nationwide Lest We Forget project, which aims to record as much information
about the war during the centenary of its final year.
The History Centre is also looking for contributions to the Bolton Remembers database, a
digital record of every serviceman from the borough who fought in either world war.
On the day, there will be a help desk staffed by the Bolton Family History Society to help
visitors find out more about their relatives’ experiences.
There will be tours of the archive’s strongroom at 11am and 1pm. At 12noon and 2pm there
will be a short discussion about First World War artifacts in the museum as well as tours
of the Town Hall’s Hall of Remembrance. Places can be booked on the tours by calling 01204
