ARCHIVE WORK PROGRESSES

The Billericay Archive Heritage group continues into its second year, courtesy of the Essex Record Office and Heritage Lottery Fund.  Hundreds from around the world  have shown interest in our history.  Our website http://www.billericayhistory.org.uk/ carries stories of people with an interest in the town.  Also, there are some wonderful films of fifty years ago provided by Ian Rough who currently lives in France.

Sadly, today was the funeral of Jack Bartlett, aged 96 (pictured above on his 90th birthday) and the group of post office workers taken in the 1950s. Jack was one of our very special people whom you will see on the Billericay history site with his wife on their wedding day in 1941. Jack was a lovely friend who enjoyed appearing in my articles and books over the last ten years.  We will miss him.
