The Marconi Heritage Group are in the
process of establishing a heritage centre in Chelmsford for the company, which, of course, was the
originator of practically all modern methods of communication, and whose early wireless equipment is
very relevant to the current commemorations of the First World War. In later years as it had over 70
locations in Essex it became one of the largest employers in the county. For further details click

The Friends of Historic Essex are running a project, in association with the Essex Record Office, to mark
the outbreak of the Great War. Running until 2018 the project aims to raise funds to provide archival
resources for educational study, family history research and community histories.
