I joined the FACHRS committee in 2007 and elected honorary secretary in 2009.
I was a founder member of FACHRS and chaired the committee of the associated Southern Region sub group. The final module of my BA Hons degree with the OU was DA301, Studying Family and Community History. I subsequently joined the OU Infant Mortality project, gaining a D Phil for my thesis on infant mortality in Fulham during the period 1876-1914. I have participated in FACHRS projects Almshouses, Victorian Marriages and Career Servants. I also coordinated the Victorian Station Masters mini project and I am currently coordinating the Great War project - The Home Front 1914-1915.
