The Society has published a number of books about the area over the years.
The items are currently on sale in Rainhill Library. You can also buy on line by credit card.
The Oakdene Hospital book was published in November 2018 as part of our celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice. The publication is based on an autograph book kept by Edith Lidstone, a nurse at Oakdene VAD hospital during WW1. It contains entries made in the autograph book by soldiers convalescing at the hospital and provides some background to each of them and to the origin of the hospital itself.
In September 2014 we issued "Rainhill Remembers the First World War" which contains some of the material that was in our exhibition marking the start of the War.
We also have packs of notelets, illustrated by line drawings of Rainhill.
