Some members of CLHG are researching the various names that are listed as being in Chalgrove on the 1939 Register of England & Wales and the censuses from 1851 to 1911 and trying to piece together their lives both in the village and the wider world.
An anaylsis of the 1939 Register which was taken on 29 September 1939 shows that there were already evacuees from London in the village at this time. Unfortunetly because the details of a lot of the people born post 1915 are closed a complete list of evacues is not possible. If you were an evacuee that spent time in Chalgrove the history group would love to here from you. For a list of the open records fromt the 1939 register see: People listed in the 1939 Register of England listed as living in Chalgrove
