A Family at War – The Effects of the First World War on the family of John and Elizabeth Royden of Liverpool(1872-1920)

The First World War had a devastating effect on the family of John and Elizabeth Royden, and for those at home their lives would never be the same again. Three fathers lost their lives and twelve children would no longer see their parent walk through the door of the family home again. This new biography covers the family in their original home, close to the bustling port of nineteenth century Liverpool, before looking at each of the children in turn to see how their lives were changed by the First World war. There are surprises when a link to cousins in New York is finally confirmed, plus the discovery of cousins whose link was previously unknown – all descended from John and Elizabeth – who were all able to add to this fascinating and sad story.

This story is too detailed to include here, but is available as a pdf file on the Royden Family History Pages website.
