Remembrance Weekend

9th November 2019

On Saturday, find Ely Museum on Ely Markets!

While the museum is closed during our National Lottery Heritage Fund redevelopment – we want to get out & about across Ely & the wider region and bring parts of our collection with us!

Are you descended from one of Ely’s Territorial soldiers? For nearly one hundred years men from Ely served in the Cambridgeshire Regiment or its forebears. Ely Museum would like your help identifying them in two photographs of the Ely Company – can you help us name the faces in the photos?

Also meet our First World War soldier reenactor who can answer all your questions about his life during The Great War.

We’ll be bringing along part of the museums handling collections too, where you can learn about life as an evacuee, see the medals of local men who fought in both wars & learn about life both at the Front and at home during the war!

Thank you to the lovely folks at Ely Markets for having us too!
