History of the Amersham Area

Amersham Remembers (U3A project)

cover front

This page is based on the book published in 2015 by the Chiltern U3A Family History Groups.

Because only a small number of copies of the book have been printed, Amersham Museum has agreed to publish it here as well so as to make this valuable research available to as wide an audience as possible.

If you want to read any part of the book, just click on the relevant heading below to download a pdf. (You will need to have a pdf reader – click here to download a free copy.)  Some of the pdfs are quite large, so please be patient.

This page and the pdf attachments are the copyright of Chiltern U3A However, short extracts may be taken but it is requested that the source is always quoted, namely: Amersham Remembers: the Men Who Gave Their Lives in the Great War, published by Chiltern U3A.
