To find out information on individual Land Girls, I would recommend the following:

  • Read the following article by Stuart Antrobus on where to start when researching the WLA.
  • Post a message to the Facebook page, which can be circulated to other Women’s Land Army networks.

If you need any other information, please get in touch, I would be more than happy to help: Please note that I run the website in my free time, so there may be a delay in getting back to you.

To find out more about the history of my website, please visit the About page.

Many thanks go to:

  • Stuart Antrobus and Dr David Wilson, who have given me a huge amount of support and encouragement in the development of my ideas and thinking around the WLA.
  • Catherine Procter, who has shared a significant amount of WLA material to the site.
  • Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse for the use of photographs on this site. The Friends of Gressenhall added nearly £10,000 in funds towards the new gallery ‘Norfolk’s Forgotten Army’ at Gressenhall.
