Oldham Historical Research Group



Have you got a story to tell or memories from years gone by?
If you have memories of work or home, school or leisure; sad or happy happenings;
about your streeets or town; in fact, anything that you can remember, about Oldham and the district,
we would love to share them.

Look at those in the menu below to get ideas. They can be: long or short; illustrated or not; your own memories or family stories handed down.
Send them to us at the email address, and mark them for, 'Memories & Stories'

Each will be credited to the author.
