FAM­ILY MEM­OIRS

One of Heather’s aunts, Louisa Ann Wind­sor, wrote a mem­oir that gave per­sonal in­sight into work­ing- class fam­ily life in the East End of Lon­don dur­ing the early 20th cen­tury. She de­scribed the house they lived in, the per­son­al­i­ties of fam­ily mem­bers and the house­work that her mother did.

LON­DON SCHOOL OF ECO­NOMICS LI­BRARY

The LSE li­brary pro­vided in­for­ma­tion about con­sci­en­tious ob­jec­tors and de­tails of Wal­ter’s po­lit­i­cal speeches ( lse. ac.uk).

ON­LINE COUR­SES

Heather did a free on­line course with Strath­clyde Univer­sity which taught her how to re­search her fam­ily his­tory.

TOWER HAM­LETS AR­CHIVE

If you have ancestors who lived in the bor­ough, Tower Ham­lets Ar­chive ( tow­er­ham­lets.
