Pauline Morbey (member no 2006-01), has submitted these family photos.
She says "they are from the Askill or the Arnold family, it could be from the Millington's side but the only thing I really know for sure is that they were found in my grandad's bungalow (Mr Thomas Arnold). My mother said he had told her that they were his grandmother and grandfather but they are a lot younger than any other pics of them that we have and do not look like them. Thomas Arnold was born in Abbey Street at the newsagent shop opposite the Coach and Horses on the corner by the Ritz cinema. His mother was Mary Ann Millington from Abbey Street".
Can anyone help Pauline to identify the people in the photographs? If you have any information please email Pauline.

It is Remembrance Sunday time of year again and, with that in mind, we are again asking for volunteers to help with a number of local projects to research and publish details of local war memorials and the life stories of the men who gave their lives. If you already have any information which you are willing to share or can spare even just a few hours to help (there are many different types of jobs involved) then please contact the War Memorials project co-ordinator.

I have just visited Nuneaton for the first time in many years , what a change I hardly recognized the town centre. On passing the Council offices opposite the old police station I recalled standing there with my school waiting to see Field Marshal Montgomery in the 1940s I believe he planted a tree in the park , do any members have any memories of this event.
If you have any memories or photographs you would like to share with Colin please email them to the Webmaster, who will forward them to Colin or you can use his membership number (1997-01) to find his email address in the contact details section of the Members' Pages.
Missing! No Mans Heath Parish Church Marriage Registers
As at January 2012 we are aware that the church copy of the marriage register for 1875-1967 is missing. We ask anyone with information on the whereabouts of this marriage register to please contact Jacqui Simkins. We know this register was held at the church in 1981 but was “missing” by 1998 and not found when the church closed in 2006. The baptism, burial and later marriage registers are with Stafford Record Office as the ecclesiastical parish is now combined with others within Staffordshire. The second copies of the marriage registers 21/7/1875 - 5/8/1967 and 9/4/1972 - 27/4/1996 are held by Nuneaton Register Office but there is no public access to these.
