Welcome to the Codnor and District Local History and Heritage website.

Nominated as one of the top five SynthaSite websites of 2008.

My hope is that this site will help people understand the origins of the local area and appreciate the effort that our ancestors have put into making this village what it is today. The information on this site is based on a study of numerous sources including local history publications, legal deeds and letters, National Archives, old books and pictures, Ancestry websites, and also the contribution of local residents.
I will record the source of each article's information at the bottom of each webpage. If there is anything you would like to see on this site or maybe something you would like to contribute, please contact me on.


To mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One, a new book is due to be published later this year to honour the memory of the Codnor and District servicemen who never came home.

The book will cover all the fallen WW1 servicemen listed on the war memorials at Crosshill and Waingroves.

Before the book goes to print I would like to take this final opportunity to ask if anyone has any pictures or information about any of the servicemen on the war memorials that they would be prepared to let me publish in the book. stuart@saint94.freeserve.co.uk
