Burntwood Town Council Grant Aid 2013 - 2014
As in previous years, the BFHG applied to Burntwood Town Council for a grant from their Grant Aid Scheme to help fund our Burntwood and District Memorial Project - Burntwood Servicemen.

In 2014 the Burntwood Family History Group has received £4000.00 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to support the Burntwood and District Memorial Project
Using money raised through the National Lottery, the Heritage Lottery Fund aims to make a lasting difference for heritage, people and communities across the UK and help build a resilient heritage economy. From museums, parks and historic places to archaeology, natural environment and cultural traditions, we invest in every part of our diverse heritage. HLF has supported over 36,000 projects with more than £5.9bn across the UK
The Burntwood Family History Group with the co-operation of families continues to give recognition to those servicemen men from the local area and surrounding districts who gave their lives for their country in World War 1 and whose names appear on local memorials, by producing printed mini-biographies which are then presented to the family and to the County Archives
Reyahn KING, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund West Midlands, said: “The First World War touched the lives of everyone in this country.  HLF has committed to funding a variety of projects, from organisations large and small, which will create a deeper understanding of the heritage of the conflict. The Burntwood and District Memorial Project will shed light on a specific aspect of the war and its effect on the families and communities involved.”
Commenting on the award, Pam WOODBURN said: We are delighted to have received the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. It will enable us to exhibit our work throughout the area and reach other soldiers’ families as yet uncontacted.
