Memorial Cottages & Bungalows
From: 2018 – Present
The Francis Willmer McAualay Memorial Cottages have been part of the community of Aylesby in North East Lincolnshire since the 1920s.
In 2019 a grant was obtained to help do more research into the history of the cottages.
The grant funding comes from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and is made possible by money raised by National Lottery players.
The project has a wider scope than just looking at the Memorial Cottages in Aylesby. We’re interested in a wider understanding of Almshouses in our area too.
The project will also enable local residents, including nearby primary school pupils to discover the origins and explore the history of local almshouses, some of which, like the ones in Alyseby, were built to commemorate local heroes who fell in the First World War.
