Research at the Carnegie Heritage Centre
Volunteers at the Carnegie Heritage Centre have helped many organisations with their research, including HERIB, Wenlock Barracks, Sailors Children Society and the Bransholme 50th Anniversary exhibition.
Our volunteers have researched Hull's local haulage transport and after the exhibition we held in June 2022 we are still collecting information and photos from ex lorry drivers and owners. Our next Road Haulage Exhibition is June 17th &18th 2023
The 1st and 2nd World War are ongoing research projects and we have put together a lot of information about local casualties from Hull. If you have a relative who was killed in either wars we will have information, and maybe photos, of them.
We researched the part that Hull & Grimsby played in the Cod and Cold Wars. This was funded by Heritage Lottery. We have interviewed and filmed people who remember these times to enable us to analyse the complete story. This has been filmed and played on "That's TV" and access to the finished film is now available from this web site, just click on the Cod & Communism page under 'Resources' on the home page. The film is also available to buy on a DVD for £5.00 plus postage, with or without subtitles, from our online shop.
We have finished our Lottery funded project, working with Dr. Antony Firth to research the Centenary of destruction of the R38/ZR-2 Airship crashing over the Humber in August 1921. We have collected lots of information, photographs and memorabilia which is now on our web site and we are still in the proccess of adding information about members of the crew.(2022)
