Memory Bank

The Memory Bank Project

Keep local history alive by sharing your memories

If you are from Hemel Hempstead or the surrounding towns, your personal stories could help FROGMORE PAPER MILL unearth local history, and exhibit the memories of our community.

Many people were employed in Hemel Hempstead’s paper and printing industry and this project will capture what it was really like to live and work locally in days gone by.

If you are an ex-BRITISH PAPER COMPANY or JOHN DICKINSON’S employee,  a papermaker, a printer, or if you have local memories totally unrelated to the paper and print industry, we’d love to hear from you.

Sessions usually take place in Frogmore Paper Mill’s on site recording studio, however outreach recording is possible.  If you’d like to take part, please contact the Memory Bank Project  Co-ordinator by e-mailing deanrielly@thepapertrail.org.uk to arrange a time.
