A closer look at our mini conference: From HM Factory Gretna to the Cadbury Factory

By July 23, 2021No Comments

Miss F Catnach was a tricky person for our volunteer researcher, Cathy, to research, because initially we only had the above photo of her and her first initial. However, she not only found her Christian name, but also uncovered a fascinating family backstory that includes suffrage, charity work and the Cadbury Factory in Birmingham! Florence had a very important role at HM Factory Gretna–she was the Chief Supervisor in the Mossband Section. Learn more about this fascinating woman by coming along to our ONLINE mini-conference on July 31st from 10-12 and hear Cathy speak about her!

Tickets are FREE and available here!
