History of our group


Our Aims

  • To promote interest in the local history of Stonehouse in all its aspects and through all periods of history.
  • To hold talks and meetings devoted to this aim and to visit places of historic interest.
  • To encourage members to work on research projects on local history.
  • To cooperate with other societies and bodies having similar interests.
  • To try to ensure that any material related to the history of Stonehouse is collected and preserved and made available for future use.


If you are looking for information about the history of Stonehouse and its people that is not on this website, please contact us and we will do our best to help.
We do not undertake research into family history for enquirers, but we can share information that we already hold in our research files and we can guide you to the places in Stonehouse where your ancestor may have lived.
