Searching for the Past

The archives at Kelmarsh contains many photos of people who worked here and of villagers who came to the hall for events. Nancy, in particular, was an avid photographer of the staff who worked for her. Not all photos have been labelled and we would love to know who these people are…
and maybe you can help us!

On this page we will be posting photos of some of the domestic servants & stable hands who worked at Kelmarsh for the Lancaster Family, as well as old photos of Kelmarsh village life. If you recognise any of the people in our photos or if you have a family member who worked here in the past, please do let us know by emailing
