Knutsford District of Foresters contribution book

Scope and Content

The volumes follows a very similar format to the above, except that the column titles are printed rather than written by hand and it bears the official KDF stamp. It has been noted in the 'Name' column if any members went to war in 1914, and it was subsequently noted whether they returned home. However, not all members went to War, prompting the question why they were exempt. It may be of interest to investigate whether age, health, or occupation had an impact on this, as these details are readily available in the collection. There are a few loose letters at the back regarding payments.
