Administrative / Biographical History

The National Savings Movement was established by the British government in 1916 to reduce government borrowing through the sale of Saving Stamps and other financial products to the general public. It was originally conceived as a war-time expedient, but its popularity led to its survival and growth until its final disbandment in 1978. The Movement comprised large numbers of local voluntary associations (sometimes called Local Savings Committees), some based in schools and workplaces, run by volunteers responsible for selling the products to the members and sending the money to the government. These voluntary organisations were supported by National Committees and regional Sub-Committees of civil servants for assistance and advice. In Anglesey, it appears that there was an overall Anglesey District, with Local Savings Committees for Amlwch, Beaumaris, Caergybi (Holyhead), Llannerch-y-medd (Llanerchymedd), Llangefni, Porthaethwy (Menai Bridge) and Valley.
