Radcliffe on Trent Local History Society

This website is managed by Radcliffe on Trent Local History Society

Radcliffe on Trent Local History Society is a research and archives group which has been established for over thirty five years. The Society continues to produce professional and detailed research for the preservation of local history. There is ongoing primary research involving recorded interviews with local people about their families and experiences in the community. As a result, the society provides a trusted and confidential repository for family documents, wills, deeds, photographs and other material. Our published books are on sale, please visit the Our Books page on this website, more publications are in progress!

Our Archives

We receive many requests from Radcliffe people near and far, asking for help with family history. Nowadays families like to use Ancestry or other family tree creators, we don’t produce bespoke family trees but we are pleased to help fill any gaps.
