The history of the Rugby Cement Company is currently being researched ahead of publication of a History of the Company. The great majority of the existing Company archives have been “rescued” and have been listed and the main information on the history of the Rugby Cement Company and its predecessor companies has been abstracted to a draft report / book ready for future publication.
To date, eight large consignments of records have been transferred to the Warwickshire County Record Office for secure storage. Where possible, all names and associated details are being abstracted so as to be available for search by Family Historians and other researchers. Five separate data bases of Warwickshire names are now available – and all of these lists will shortly be updated.
A search for any name, or names, can be undertaken, and the dates and references that may be available can be provided – a small contribution for each search would be appreciated. Should you require a search, please send an Email to the number below for more information.
