Hadnall - all
things locally historical!
This website has now changed its focus. It
will no longer be updated on a daily basis with
village news and information. At the moment
the best source of information is www.hadnallcouncil.co.uk
Over the years we have accumulated a small amount of
historical information about Hadnall. There
have been a number of enquiries from many parts of
the world with people asking for information or
indeed supplying pictures and stories etc. The
site will therefore continue to make this
information available to everyone - indeed the focus
will be to increase what is offered.
We are not only recording the
'old' history of Hadnall, but also the 'new'
history. As the village changes and grows,
we will be recording these changes to form a
bigger and broader record of Hadnall. We
welcome any contributions from anyone with a story
to tell, old or new pictures. Requests for
information may be accepted as there are folk
living in the village who may know the answers.

wording. Photographs will also be taken and
then the lengthy process of transcribing all the
data onto web pages and then
making the information here.
Initially, it will be piecemeal as a "work in
progress" so that the team can see how their
efforts are being used and also as a test bench to
ensure the elements work properly. The work has
now made good progress with the interactive map
available for over 300 graves. Comments from
beyond the Group are very welcome too. The
work is now completed, subject to new changes
(December 2019). Should you discover
an error in the data, we would be very grateful
for the information, so that we can amend
We would be interested to hear about any aspect of
the Church's history, particularly about the
